Cultural humility provides an umbrella framework for empathy and communication in palliative care. It represents the ability to give space and stay open to the experiences and lives of the patient and family, especially with regard to their cultural identities and values. Cultural humility requires lifelong learning. This chapter provides historical background, perspectives, skills, challenges, and tools to better understand and enact the practice of cultural humility. The role of cultural competency as it relates to cultural humility is explored as well.
