Overview

Diversity characterizes today’s health care environment. Persistent gaps in care linked to race, ethnicity, language, disability, sexual orientation, or gender expression contribute to decreased patient safety, poorer health outcomes, and lower quality. As nurses, we must be responsive to the changing needs of society and understand the preferred cultural values, beliefs, worldview and practices of the patients, families and communities for whom we provide nursing care. Culturally congruent practice and services can improve access, promote positive outcomes and reduce disparities. This webcast, presented as the National Nurses Week webinar on May 10, 2016 describes how nurses can provide culturally congruent care, reflect on understanding the values and beliefs nurses bring to the patient-nurse relationship, and identify knowledge, skills and evidence-based tools to support culturally congruent nursing practice.

This course expires on May 17, 2019.
