In this lecture Dr. Gilbert provides an in-depth discussion regarding the rationale for developing ND cultural competency. This lecture will review the specific terms and definitions of inclusion and discrimination, the research on experiences of discrimination in healthcare, and the legal obligations and ethical responsibilities.
