Course Overview

This module introduces the Romani (Gypsy) people; presents common Romani values, beliefs and practices related to healthcare; and provides insight into the promotion of culturally competent care so providers can better care for this patient population. The Roma are a particularly diverse group, having migrated to multiple geographic areas throughout the world. Providers can use generalizations about Roma cultural practices as a starting point for patient and family assessment, but they need to ask Romani patients and their families about their unique values and practices. As North America becomes more culturally diverse, providing culturally congruent care to patients and their families, as well as understanding and integrating their cultural values, beliefs and practices into the care plan, are crucial to increase patient and family satisfaction and improve healthcare outcomes.
