Abstract

Competence in culturally sensitive care in healthcare has been included into the Japanese medical school curriculum since 2001 and will be integrated into the Japanese nursing school curriculum in 2018. Since the concept of competence in culturally sensitive care is new to the Japanese healthcare education, we need to gain knowledge about the concept from other forward-thinking countries. However, when introducing the concept of competence in culturally sensitive care from foreign countries to Japan, the knowledge and experiences of those countries should be considered.
