This Blueprint for Teaching Cultural Competence in Physical Therapy Education is intended as a guide to assure that core knowledge, attitudes, and skills specific to developing cultural competence are being addressed in physical therapy education programs. The primary goal of the curriculum blueprint is to enable faculty to prepare future physical therapy practitioners to meet the health care needs of diverse consumers in a culturally competent manner. It is a belief that culturally competent health care practitioners can, in fact, impact the trend of growing health disparities and, potentially, reduce or eliminate health disparities.
