Culturally Congruent Care: Why Diversity Makes a Difference
Featured Speaker: Marilyn (Marty) Douglas, PhD, RN, FAAN
Tuesday, May 10, 2016 – 1:00 p.m. EDT
You encounter patients, families, and communities from all walks of life and must understand the preferred cultural values, beliefs, worldview, and practices of those you care for, every day. Culturally congruent care and diversity in your workplace can help close persistent gaps in care linked to race, ethnicity, language, disability, sexual orientation, or gender expression and can also contribute to increased patient safety, better quality of care, and improved health outcomes.
That's why we've developed this year's 2016 National Nurses Week webinar, “Culturally Congruent Care: Why Diversity Makes a Difference”, with nurses like you in mind. During this 60-minute exclusive live event, we will outline how you can provide culturally congruent care; reflect on understanding the values and beliefs you bring to your patient-nurse relationship; and identify knowledge, skills, and evidence-based tools you need to support culturally congruent care in your nursing environment.
After attending you'll be able to:
- Define culturally congruent care in nursing practice in relation to patient, family, and community nursing care
- Distinguish between cultural competence and culturally congruent care
- Utilize strategies for critical reflection of one's own values, beliefs, and cultural heritage in order to have an awareness of how these qualities and issues impact culturally congruent care
- Identify resources to support an evidence-based approach to culturally congruent practice
Get real-world best practice guidance on how practicing in a culturally congruent nursing environment can improve access, promote positive outcomes, and reduce disparities. Lock in your spot today and join us as we celebrate this year's 2016 National Nurses Week!
