Title:
New World Views for Students
Abstract:
New World Views for Students
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2001
Conference Date:November 10 - 14, 2001
Author:Hindmarsh, Julie
P.I. Institution Name:Johns Hopkins University
The purpose of this presentation is to present a model for developing cultural competency to undergraduate and graduate nursing students. Essential elements in this model are: 1) Self guided cultural assessment, 2) Nursing theory as applied to cross cultural care, 3) Cultural immersion experience(s), 4) Guest presenters from selected cultural groups, 5) Journaling and 6) Evaluating cultural competency and demonstrating integrating cultural competency into nursing practice. The format will include a PowerPoint presentation of the design and implementation of Cultural Dimension of Health Care (CDHC) which was initiated at Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing in 1999. Participants will complete a high context/low context cultural inventory and discuss the results and implications for nurse/patient communication and provision of care. Concepts of nursing theorists Leininger, Giger and Davidhizer will be introduced. The presentation style will include lecture, individual participation and group discussion. Measuring changes in cultural competence among students participating in the CDHC will be discussed. If funds permit a graduate student will come to discuss the impact of the course on her practice. As both the demographics of the U.S. and the nursing workforce grow to reflect a multicultural community, it is imperative that leaders in nursing education prepare nurses to appreciate and respect cultural differences. In order to lead globally nursing leaders must first identify their own cultural heritages and how the "givens" the grew up with may differ from others with whom they are working or giving care. Knowledge and respect can lead to informed, meaningful communication. Studying different cultural values, health beliefs and health care practices can be the beginning of moving from "I can't understand that person" to "I can respect that person's belief and work with them to improve their health." Or "I can learn a lot from my coworker about how to better care for this population."
