The Importance of Cultural Diversity in Health Care

For health care experts like Patricia Prelock, Ph.D., Dean of the College of Nursing and Health Sciences at the University of Vermont, these changing demographics underscore the importance of cultural diversity in a profession where the patient-provider relationship is key to determining the quality of care.

“Interacting with a health care professional is such a personal relationship that it’s important that the provider you have understands the values and beliefs of the individual with whom they are working,” Prelock explains.

“The patients we’re serving now will look very different from the patients we’re going to be serving in 20 years,” she says. “If we don’t have the cultural context of the people we’re serving, we’re not going to be effective as health care professionals. It’s not just in medicine; it’s in nursing, speech pathology, physical therapy, radiation therapy – all the health professions.”

Consider these statistics from the U.S. Census Bureau:

  • In 2043, the so-called “minority” populations will become the majority in the United States. However, no one single group will make up a majority. The non-Hispanic white population will remain the largest single group. By 2060, “minorities” – meaning those who are not of white European descent – are projected to comprise 57 percent of the population, up from 37 percent today.
  • By 2060, nearly one in three Americans will be Hispanic (the term used by the U.S. Census), up from one in six today. The Hispanic population will more than double, to 128.8 million.
  • The percentage of black Americans will increase to 14.7 percent — 61.8 million — in 2060.
  • Asian Americans will double to 34.4 million in 2060, comprising 8.2 percent of the total population.
