Actions for DB 5: Culturally Congruent Nursing Care
When we think about culturally congruent nursing care and interventions, there are significant dimensions to consider. Chapter 11 has provided a wide range of issues to consider when incorporating cultural information in program development, implementation, and evaluation. There are basic principles to consider in the practical application of programming. In addition, Chapter 12 speaks to the connection between the effort to eliminate health disparities and the concept of cultural competence. The CLAS cultural competence standards are described, as is the “Kleinman-Benson” take on cultural competence.
There are TWO elements to this discussion. The first gives YOU one of three options to present. The scenarios are from Chapter 11, Pg. 156-157. The final prompt is about cultural competence and health disparities.
A. First, select ONE of the three scenarios described below, and develop your initial post with the question prompts. Title your post with the scenario name. In your reply posts, reply to at least ONE who has presented a case other than the one you presented.
B. Second, to wrap up this post, present what you feel is the connection between cultural competence and the issue of health disparities?
