Bibliographic information:


Quickfall, Julia. 2004. "Developing a Model for Culturally Competent Primary Care Nursing for Asylum Applicants and Refugees in Scotland: A Review of the Literature." Diversity in Health and Social Care 1 (1):53-64. 




The author undertook a literature review in order to locate studies of culturally competent primary care nursing of asylum seekers and refugees.  Her aim was to develop a model that could be applied in Scotland.  The article begins with an overview of asylum in the United Kingdom (UK), with a discussion of definitions and UK asylum policy.  Next, it describes the health care policies for asylum seekers and challenges that they face.  The author then introduces the concept of "cultural competence," and describes her search methodology for retrieving literature that applies this concept to nursing practices in the United States and the United Kingdom.  The author presents a model for cultural competence which was developed based on recommendations from the literature.  Over 50 references are listed.
