Discuss how “showing a people as one thing” could interfere with culturally competent nursing practice
Discuss how “showing a people as one thing” could interfere with culturally competent nursing practice. To explore healthcare disparities, a conversation about implicit bias is necessary. The CDC Office of Minority Health and Health Equity (2011) reports lower life expectancy, higher rates of disability and preventable disease, and higher infant mortality rates in minority cultures and particular races routinely caused by inequity in access to care and a difference in the quality of care delivered to these individuals. This forum allows you to discuss bias, sometimes conscious & often unconscious, and how beliefs affect healthcare delivery.
What are the three primary skills required to practice culturally competent nursing?
The Social Justice Coalition of the Cambridge Health Alliance physicians published a letter to their patients on November 15, 2016, seeking to reassure their clients and emphasize their belief in eight basic rights to equal, scientifically supported healthcare delivery to all (Social Justice Coalition – From America’s Healers: A letter to our patients in the Trump era) with 6,261 co-signers. ——> https://medium.com/beyond-the-safety-pin/a-letter-to-our-patients-in-the-trump-era-d99c9007f960#.hd6m85x3p
Purpose: To increase your knowledge of racial and ethnic disparities in healthcare to strengthen patient-provider relationships in the clinical setting.
