Using the Cultural Competence text across the athletic training curriculum

Cultural Competence in Sports Medicine is a must-have resource for any future health care professional who will likely work with athletes and patients of diverse cultural backgrounds. This unique text stresses the importance of recognizing different cultural attitudes, beliefs, and expectations so that athletic trainers and other health care professionals can modify their professional behavior accordingly to reflect their sensitivity to their patients’ needs, ultimately resulting in a comfortable and positive health care experience for the patient.


The National Athletic Trainers’ Association (NATA) Education Competencies suggest that cultural competence as a foundational behavior should be integrated throughout the curriculum. Yet most texts used for athletic training education only briefly address this topic. Cultural Competence in Sports Medicine, when used throughout a program in multiple courses, is a text to help. This download is a useful guide/outline to show how to integrate this text into your program, ensuring students from your institution are learning to respect cultural differences when treating athletes.
