Abstract

Cultural diversity has been well-recognized as a challenge for health care providers in many countries, thereby stressing the importance of effective and sufficient communications between patients and health care staff. Culturally competent care is a key to day-to-day practice, and we must strive to provide optimum care despite personal differences. If the health care service is to provide culturally competent care, our radiographers are vulnerable and prone to errors because effective communication requires both cultural competence and knowledge of the language. An understanding in effective communication, cultural competence, and uncertainty is important in the profession of radiographers.
