Cultural humility

The Asian Breast Cancer Support Group encourages a model of interaction with patients known as Cultural Humility. Cultural Humility is a lifelong process of self-reflection and self-critique that goes beyond Cultural Competence (the standard diversity training programmes within the NHS).

The Cultural Humility model relies on actively engaging in an ongoing process of communication with the patient while actively following the patient. A range of non-verbal and verbal skills have been modelled & rehearsed in situations of increasing complexity with opportunities to reflect and develop greater self-awareness.

The poster below contains further information on the Cultural Humility Model.
