The Agency for Healthcare Quality and Research (AHRQ) has developed this Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (CAHPS) Cultural Competency Item Set as a potential supplement to the Adult Clinician and Group Survey. The items include measures on:
- Patient-provider communication
- Complementary and alternative medicine
- Experiences of discrimination
- Experiences leading to trust or distrust
- Interpreter services
This item set is still undergoing validation and review and has yet to be widely adopted or implemented.
