Cultural Competence among health care providers: how are we doing?

A study was published recently in BMC Medical Education Online, pointing out the gaps in teaching cultural competence for medical students in 12 european universities.

One the challenges seems to be the lack of awareness and motivation among the key stakeholders (managers, teachers), in order to allocate ressources and time for training teachers and students on CC.

In spite of increasing diversity among patients and increasing inequalities in health allover Europe, teaching of CC seems to not be yet a priority in most health professional curriculums.

What about Switzerland?
