Commentary on: Shorey S, Debby E, Downe S. Cultural competence and experiences of maternity health care providers on care for migrant women: A qualitative meta-synthesis. Birth 2021; 1–12. doi: 10.1111/birt.12581
Implications for practice and research
Ensuring optimal maternity care for im/migrant and visible minority women requires proper training for care providers.
More research is needed towards implementation of relevant integrated policies, resources, and training towards culturally relevant care models.
Cultural competency among healthcare practitioners is critical to ensure congruent healthcare for women from diverse cultural and ethnic backgrounds.1 Existing cultural competency research focuses mainly on the views and experiences of local and indigenous people from an insider’s perspective.2 Although patients’ perspectives are vital, healthcare practitioners’ perspectives and experiences are also required to address critical challenges associated with developing culturally inclusive, high-quality healthcare for various minority groups.
