The concept of cultural humility in nursing involves an awareness of diversity and how an individual’s culture can affect their health behaviours. Nurses can use this awareness to develop sensitive, tailored and person-centred approaches to patient care, which ultimately contribute to a positive healthcare experience. This article examines the concept of cultural humility with reference to person and family-centred care. It also explores how individuals and organisations can challenge discriminatory attitudes and behaviours in the workplace.
