Summary:

 As the population soars in diversity, healthcare professionals of various disciplines must be prepared to care for childbearing families from many cultures. All cultures and families need to be given the same respect and welcome; be assured of a birth experience that benefits from the highest quality of care; have their religious, ethnic and cultural values respected and integrated into their care; and have their physical and educational needs met in a way that respects spiritual beliefs and individuality. This continuing education module educates healthcare professionals about the cultural beliefs of several diverse ethnic groups.
