DISCUSSION: Cultural Competence ( 1 PAGE, (250-300 WORD)
Providing culturally competent care is an integral component of providing quality care. With the changing demographics of today’s population, nurses need to ensure that they understand the needs and values of various cultures. As noted by Dr. Rachel Smith in this week’s media and in the course textbook, nurses develop competence through their personal experiences, awareness, and promotion of mutual respect for differences.
To prepare for this Discussion, review the media presentations and Chapter 7 in the textbook. Focus particularly on Dr. Smith’s presentation on cultural competence and on pages 146–152 in the textbook which discusses cultural competence. Also, review the Douglas, et al. article on “Standards of Practice for Culturally Competent Nursing Care.” Then, select a major ethnic or religious group from your community. With this group in mind, respond to the following questions:
What major ethnic or religious groups are present in your community whose culture is different from your own?
Discuss your assumptions about this group.
How might a nurse’s positive or negative assumptions influence the care provided, and thus health outcomes?
Support your response with references from the professional nursing literature
