EthnoMed was first designed as a quick resource to be used by healthcare professionals in the few minutes before seeing a patient. The website currently provides a multi-faceted service with well-rounded ethnic information for those who serve diverse communities. Links and full text of multilingual patient education materials constitute one reason for accessing this website. There are also sections on various cultures’ customs and mores, religious and health beliefs and practices– all of which may be helpful to providers who want insights into culturally-competent approaches to immigrant and refugee patients.
