Expertise Areas:

Dr. Campinha-Bacote has given many national and international presentations on her two conceptual models of healthcare delivery: The Process of Cultural Competence in the Delivery of Healthcare Services and A Biblically Based Model of Cultural Competence in the Delivery of Healthcare Services, which several colleges/schools of nursing, pharmacy, social work, medicine, dentistry and other allied healthcare disciplines are incorporating into their undergraduate and graduate programs. Based on these models, she has developed the instruments, Inventory for Assessing the Process of Cultural Competence Among Healthcare Professionals – Revised (IAPCC-R), Inventory for Assessing the Process of Cultural Competence Among Healthcare Professionals – Student Version (IAPCC-SV), Inventory for Assessing the Process of Cultural Competence Among Healthcare Professionals in Mentoring (IAPCC-M), and Inventory for Assessing A Biblically Based Worldview of Cultural Competence Among Healthcare Professionals (IABWCC). Dr. Campinha-Bacote served on the National Advisory Committee to the United States Department of Health and Human Services Office of Minority Health (USDHHS OMH) to develop standards for culturally and Linguistically Appropriate Services (CLAS) in Health Care. She continued this interest, as she served as a consultant to the USDHHS OMH to implement these CLAS standards by assisting in the development of the Cultural Competency Curricula Modules (CCCMs) for family physicians and the Culturally Competent Nursing Modules (CCNM) Project.

Present/Future Directions 

Dr. Leininger graciously gave transcultural nursing its thrust into existence and I firmly believe it is our duty and responsibility to continue to move this specialty field forward by creating more strategic, multidisciplinary, and innovative ways to carry out transcultural nursing’s original mission.  A C.A.R.E. approach is one way to continue this ongoing journey. Specifically, transcultural nursing must take the lead in investigating Clinical, Administrative, Research and Educational issues to  move the global pendulum to health care equity for all.
