What is it about?
The aim of this study was to examine the relationship between patient centeredness and cultural competence among primary care physicians (N=92). The study found that there was a moderate correlation between patient centeredness and cultural competence scores among the primary care physicians. Interestingly, the results also showed that there was a weak relationship between shared decision-making and cultural competence.

Why is it important?
This study is important because 1) both patient centeredness and cultural competence have been proposed as potential strategies for promoting equity in healthcare; 2) while the literature indicates that patient centeredness and cultural competence have many similar characteristics, the relationship between them is poorly understood.
