Managing society’s difference and diversity

Joseph Cortis Senior Lecturer, School of Healthcare Studies, University of Leeds

The need for nurses to be more culturally sensitive to deliver better health care to minority ethnic groups is the subject of this article. The author argues that there needs to be better understanding of equality, more value placed on diversity, better recognition of racism and active challenging of racism when and where it occurs in health care.
