REHABDATA Abstract: This guide provides information to help faculty in university-level occupational therapy programs to integrate cultural competency education throughout their curriculum. Its purpose is to enhance existing curricula by making available to instructors resources, case studies, and activities that can be adapted by the instructor as needed, in courses that are specific to cultural competence, or infused into other courses in the curriculum.
