Cultural and linguistic competence

ICN Position:

The International Council of Nurses (ICN) and its member organisations

believe that nurses should be culturally and linguistically competent to

understand and respond effectively to the cultural and linguistic needs of

clients, families and communities in a health care encounter.1

ICN believes that nurses should demonstrate cultural competence2

by:

  • developing an awareness of one’s own culture without letting it have
  • an undue influence on those from other backgrounds;

  • demonstrating knowledge and understanding of different cultures;
  • accepting that there may be differences between the cultural beliefs
  • and values of the health care provider and the client;

  • accepting and respecting cultural differences;
  • adapting care to be congruent with the client’s culture and
  • expectations; and

  • providing culturally appropriate care so as to deliver the best possible
  • client outcomes.

    ICN believes clients have a right to culturally and clinically appropriate care

    delivery provided by the appropriate person in the health care team.

    ICN believes, however, that accepting and respecting cultural differences and

    adapting care to be congruent with the client’s culture should not result in

    nursing practice that would be in contravention of professional codes of ethics,

    nursing practice standards, legal frameworks or United Nations human rights

    conventions. Nurses have an obligation to safeguard, respect and actively

    promote people’s health rights at all times and in all places3

    . Nurses need to

    be vigilant in this area particularly with respect to vulnerable groups such as

    women, children, elderly, refugees and stigmatised groups.

    ICN strongly supports nurses developing linguistic competence by

    understanding and responding effectively to the linguistic needs brought by

    the client to the health care encounter. Such means as being able to

    communicate directly in the client’s own language or through the use of

    trained interpreters and qualified translators are required.

    For public protection, nurses need to communicate verbally and in writing in a

    manner sensitive to client needs and in language that can be clearly

    understood with the assistance of trained interpreters and qualified translators

    if needed. Failure of the nurse to accurately comprehend client needs or if the

    client is not able to understand advice and instruction given can result in

    errors.

    ICN expects employers to provide all newly hired nurses with an appropriate

    orientation or a period of adaptation to ensure they have the means of

    addressing the cultural and linguistic needs of their client group.

    ICN firmly believes that nurses are responsible and accountable for their

    nursing practice. When dealing with clients from a cultural or linguistic group

    different from their own, nurses should be aware that additional steps may

    need to be taken to ensure interventions are sensitive to the client’s cultural

    and linguistic needs.

    Background

    The way a client perceives illness, the specific disease and its associated

    symptoms are tied to the client’s underlying cultural values and beliefs. The

    manner in which a person responds to these factors and how they relate to

    the nurse will be influenced by these values and beliefs and can affect the

    understanding and acceptance of any care offered.

    Nurses provide care designed to meet the individual needs of the client. This

    client centeredness has the goal of ensuring that the client’s physical,

    psychosocial and cultural needs and beliefs are taken into account when

    deciding on interventions and that clients have the necessary information to

    participate in their own care.

    In the broad sense, diversity encompasses acceptance and respect. For

    nurses it means understanding that each individual is unique, and recognising

    individual differences. These differences may span the dimensions of race,

    ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, age, physical

    abilities, spiritual or religious beliefs, political beliefs or other ideologies.

    Cultural and linguistic competence require cultural awareness; the deliberate,

    cognitive process in which health care providers become appreciative and

    sensitive to the values, beliefs, practices and problem solving strategies of

    clients’ cultures.4

    A person’s culture forms an important part of their identity and communication

    of cultural understanding and respect is an essential tool in forming a

    therapeutic relationship with the client.

    Linguistic competence is demonstrated by a nurse who has the capacity to

    communicate effectively and convey information in a manner that is easily

    understood.5

    Nonverbal and verbal communication may differ in meaning according to

    different cultures. Awareness of this is vital in order to avoid

    misunderstanding, lack of cooperation or offence.

    Cultural and linguistic competence, page 3/3

    Assistance may be provided to nurses and individuals through services such as

    translation and interpretation. Translation is the process of transferring, between

    languages, ideas that are expressed in writing. Interpretation is the process

    used in transferring ideas expressed orally or (as with sign language) by

    gesture.
