Abstract:
CASN Nursing Academic Leadership Conference: Although the need for culturally sensitive health care has long been acknowledged in Canadian society, this goal still remains elusive. Lack of cultural competency in clinical practice reinforces continuation of marginalization and oppression for both patients and nurses. This is especially true for nursing students who are in the process of developing their own confidence, competence and identity as novice practitioners. This presentation will share highlights of an educational research initiative aimed at fostering the development of therapeutic relationships that reflect an understanding of cultural issues. The Culturally Responsive Therapeutic Relationships (CRTR) initiative is a collaborative venture between a hospital and a Faculty of Nursing that facilitates development of cultural awareness and fosters the development and integration of t best practices in both cultural competence and therapeutic relationships. The approach builds on current best practice guidelines, literature, and practice reflections to facilitate learning. This initiative was optional and outside the regular curriculum; despite this, student feedback was positive and students demonstrated increased confidence and competency in clinical practice. The faculty experiences with the project have been equally positive. These experiences as well as implications for both the content and process of such an educational initiative will be highlighted.
