Expanding Clinician's Understandings of Culturally Congruent Care
2:00 - 3:00 pm (ET)
The 2015 revision of the American Nurses Associations (ANA) Code of Ethics reinforced that nurses must meet the individual needs of patients by providing culturally competent care. Today’s nurse must be well-equipped with the specific knowledge and skills needed to deliver thoughtful and thorough care. Partnering with interdisciplinary teams encourages nurses to adopt and exude the important characteristics of a skilled nurse. Faculty can facilitate this learning through innovative teaching strategies that assist nurses in valuing and recognizing unique needs of a diverse patient population. This webinar will explore how culturally competent care has the driving force in enhancing recognition and communication styles with the LGBTQIA+ patient population. The speaker will also provide a course development outline to demonstrate how you can ensure that you are providing culturally competent care in your practice setting.
- Understand the principles of culturally competent care in the context of the ANA’s 2015 Code of Ethics
- Apply culturally competent principles to multiple avenues of the learning process
- Demonstrate ongoing innovative approaches to curriculum development and interdisciplinary care integration
