Introduction. Insufficient cultural competences among health care professionals (HCPs) working with ethnic minorities may result in poorer quality of care. This study aimed to develop a cultural intervention for HCPs. Method. The intervention was designed using the Behavior Change Wheel. The development phase contained empirical studies of patients with HIV and African background, literature review, observations from a migrant health clinic, and transcultural care theory. Results. Systematic development will facilitate an intervention tailored to focus on nurses’ sensitivity and awareness, and aims to give them tools to identify narratives about patients’ life situation and self-management as well as provide effective, compassionate, and culturally competent care. Discussion. Higher cultural competence among nurses may improve their support of patients to manage their disease.
