Cross-cultural care – personal or professional? -- REHACARE Trade Fair

Cross-cultural care – personal or professional?

The range of services and information focusing on home-based and outpatient care is quite large. Yet oftentimes these services are not sufficiently targeted towards the sociocultural needs and expectations of people with an immigrant background. Now, the "OPEN – Interkulturelle Öffnung in der Pflegeberatung" (English: OPEN- Cross-Cultural Openness in Health Care Counseling) project that’s sponsored by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research wants to change this.
