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.
