Quickfall (2004) Developing a model for culturally competent primary care nursing for asylum applicants and refugees in Scotland: A review of the literature
This paper by Quickfall (2004) presents the author’s five-step model of primary care nursing for refugee and asylum seekers in Scotland. Previously published literature has focused primarily on secondary care. The author develops and presents a model which is ‘culturally competent’. The model is intended to address a previous lack of cultural competence and address issues such as racism and discrimination within the NHS. This review reflects the difficulties faced by those seeking asylum or refugee status in Scotland. This group is not ethnically homogenous and its members are often marginalised and disadvantaged particularly when it comes to accessing welfare and care systems. For more on this topic, see Quickfall (2010) which builds on the content of this paper.
