Multiculturalism in the care system

Handling Multiculturality Care

It may sound simplistic, but multicultural care occurs when professional care workers work with clients from different cultural groups and how that might affect interactions that take place within the care worker and client/resident relationship. In the UK and other EU countries, this definition is expanded to include dissimilarities in religion and spirituality, sexual orientation, gender, age and maturity, socioeconomic class, family history, and even geographic location.

Handling Multiculturality Care is the first step in effective multicultural training is to identify and acknowledge these differences between the care workers and resident/client.
