Description

This study aims to explore patient perceptions of culturally congruent care within a tertiary neonatal intensive care unit to inform a model of culturally congruent care. The interviews identified four elements at the patient level that influence culturally congruent care: caring and trusting provider-client relationships, respectful and appropriate communication, availability of culturally responsive and accessible social and spiritual supports, and a welcoming and flexible organizational environment.
