A clinician uses cultural competence when meeting with a new patient to build trust through open communication.
Hello and welcome.
As I am doing your intake, I’ll be asking some questions. If there are any you don't want to answer, just let me know.
To start, I see that you’ve filled out the check box identifying as Hispanic or Latine/x. Can you let me know if you use one or both?
Thanks for answering. I would like to hear more about your own self-identification. Do you mind telling me a little more about yourself?
I'm glad you asked. Most people just group us all together. I'm actually from Colombia on the Caribbean side, a city called Cartagena. It's a great city. Have you heard of it?
I’ve actually never left the US, but I'm looking to travel more. Should it be on my bucket list? Tell me more about it.
