This course is designed to help students explore, understand, and appreciate the challenges posed by culturally and ethnically diverse patient populations and to recognize cultural dimensions of problems that occur in health care contexts between health care providers and patients and their families. The goal is to help the learner understand human differences, preferences, biases, and stereotypes in order to foster the development of awareness, sensitivity, knowledge, and competence required to provide affirmation of the diversity they encounter in health care institutions and practice situations.Various transcultural nursing approaches will be explored to assist students in determining how to interact effectively in providing care for their culturally diverse patients and families. Concepts derived from anthropology and cross-cultural research will provide a perspective from which to understand the ways in which culture can have implications for health and health care.One of the primary goals of this course is to help students understand the barriers that prevent culturally competent care and to learn strategies to improve patient-provider communication and overall quality of care.
