We conducted a systematic review to determine Spanish health professionals' interest on cultural competence (CC) and identify studies which evaluate and/or aim at improving this competence. PubMed, Dialnet, Cochrane Library, together with other sources of information were consulted. Only two studies evaluating CC in Spain were found, one of them discussing an actual training course on CC which had been carried out. All other papers were bibliographical reviews or practical guides. A systematic review of a total of 9 articles selected through the PRISMA criteria, meeting the CASPe criteria, was performed.Even though the importance and the need to improve this competence are clear, CC in Spain among health professionals is still at its primary stage of development. Compared to other countries such as Canada and the United States, Spain is one step behind in tackling CC at undergraduate, postgraduate and continuous professional training levels. The possibility of having a validated tool would be interesting to work with this competence in relation to other countries. For future research we propose having a proactive role towards this competence, developing tools and programs to improve CC among health professionals.
