Abstract:
To provide client centred care that is as individually focused as possible, a very broad understanding of who the person contributes significantly to this process. Diversity, equity and social justice are of central importance to understanding the various dimensions of our clients' lives, along with the many critical issues they encounter while accessing health care. These themes are woven through the undergraduate nursing curriculum at the University of Toronto through courses and student experiences. One central location for these themes is the mental health course which provides many avenues for students to consider both clients' illnesses and related life experience. Through the course students are helped to consider determinants of health and other topics related to social justice and equity. Through discussions and an essay assignment they consider the experience of intersectionality for clients who are at risk for being disadvantaged, and the relevance of this experience to their identity. Challenges related to teaching this course and facilitating a related assignment will be described along with outcomes for students, such as an increased awareness of issues of social justice and a fuller understanding of how to conceptualize meaningful client centred care.
