Findings from a qualitative ethnographic study that examined the experiences of a group of persons with Parkinson disease are presented in this article. Culturally competent care for persons who share a common illness, such as Parkinson disease, is facilitated when the findings are incorporated into the Clinically Relevant Continuum Model. Use of this model allows providers to evaluate and use appropriate published evidence in addition to provider expertise and patient preferences and values.
