Developing Cross-Cultural Competence
Viviane Fournier, a nursing teacher at the CÉGEP de Saint-Laurent, has developed an approach aimed at developing cross-cultural competence in health-program instruction. In this interview, she explains how such competence makes it possible to recognize the values of others. Cross-cultural competence allows us to objectively consider the basis of how we see things, avoid cultural faux pas, and ensure that all professional activities are truly based on professional values.
