Developing Hospital Standards to Advance Culturally Competent Patient-Centered Care


Findings from a major Joint Commission study indicate that hospitals need more robust guidance and incentives for adopting practices that promote culturally competent, patient-centered care. Building on this work, the Joint Commission will develop accreditation standards to promote, facilitate, and incentivize the provision of culturally competent, patient-centered care in health care organizations. Project staff will produce a standards implementation guide and an article for publication in the Joint Commission's official newsletter to introduce the new standards to the field and provide information about the implementation timeframe. The Joint Commission will provide cofunding.
