Abstract:
Strategies for Teaching Cultural Diversity: Needs Assessments and Cultural Blueprinting
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2001
Conference Date:November 10 - 14, 2001
Author:Wieland, Diane
P.I. Institution Name:La Salle University
This colloquium will focus on population-based nursing and the graduate nursing course developed to address cultural blueprinting and community needs assessment in diverse populations. This course utilizes the Purnell and Paulanka (1998) model of cultural assessment. Students learn about various cultural groups through discussion, films, and exploration of a community in which students complete a cultural blueprint of a population of their choice. Students further learn about the context of care in communities by completing a needs assessment of this same community, using the Anderson & McFarlane (2000) model. Sources of data include census track data, vital statistics, a windshield tour of the community, use of internet websites, and interviewing key informants and culturally sensitive health care providers in the communities. The goal is to promote cultural competence and to develop community health promotion program development skills in advanced practice nurses. The cultural blueprint and needs assessment assignments focus on populations in need, many of which are impoverished. The course also stresses group dynamics as a means to prepare advanced practice nurses to work effectively with community groups. This section of the colloquium will present the foundation for educators and clinicians to address means to complete cultural blueprints and needs assessments. Four cultural blueprints and needs assessment projects completed in this course will be presented, including: 1) Jewish women in Northeast Philadelphia; 2) Hispanic/Latino populations in North Philadelphia; 3) Mexican migrant farm workers of Southern New Jersey; and 4) the Amish population of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.
