1. Cultural Competency
The University definition of cultural competency includes the ability to: “effectively and comfortably communicate across
cultures with patients of differing backgrounds, taking into account aspects of trust in order to adopt mutually
acceptable objectives and measures.” Dancing Skeletons describes how anthropologists seek knowledge of other cultures and
how cross-cultural understanding is a foundation for health interventions at both interpersonal and public health/public
policy levels. Write an essay that discusses how this anthropological study illuminates barriers to cross-cultural
understanding and contributes to cultural competency in healthcare.
