Quickfall (2004) Developing a model for culturally competent primary care nursing for asylum applicants and refugees in Scotland: A review of the literature This paper by Quickfall (2004) presents the author’s five-step model of primary care nursing for refugee and asylum seekers in Scotland. Previously published literature has focused primarily on secondary care. The author develops and presents a model which is ‘culturally competent’. The model is intended to address a previous lack of cultural competence and address issues such as racism and discrimination within the NHS. This review reflects the difficulties faced by those seeking asylum or refugee status in Scotland. This group is not ethnically homogenous and its members are often marginalised and disadvantaged particularly when it comes to accessing welfare and care systems.

Quickfall (2010) Cross-cultural promotion of health: A partnership process? Principles and factors involved in the culturally competent community based nursing care of asylum applicants in Scotland Quickfall (2010) presents findings from an investigation of factors which contribute to culturally competent nursing care for those seeking asylum in Scotland. The study found partnership processes were necessary in order to ensure that appropriate ‘person centred’ care was delivered to asylum applicants. This approach was also needed to facilitate equality of access to health services. Facilitating asylum applicants’ adaptation to their new Scottish environment requires the provision of socially inclusive and non-discriminatory services. The study utilised a wide range of methods to gather data, these included interviews and observation of asylum applicants and nursing staff in Glasgow. Overall, the study underlines the important role of community nursing. The research also set out some guidelines for best practice and suggests areas in need of further investigation.
