Abstract:
Patients and families manage and cope best when they have a good support system and good relationships with their caregivers. The primary role of the radiation oncology nurse is to provide education in an outpatient setting. This educational project enabled the staff to use an innovative approach to cancer education. The Sunrise Model, used to depict the theory of culture care, diversity, and universality, empowered the nurses with a unique framework and rich perspective to deliver an alternate support system for individualized care. The purpose of this poster is to illustrate, as an exemplar (a) an outline of Dr. Madeline LeiningerÆs Sunrise Model (b) application of the model for itÆs use in oncology education and (c) the integration of a culture care education program for the oncology team. Several key strategies were implemented by using the theoretical framework of nursing by Dr. Madeleine Leininger: ôThe Theory of Culture Care, Diversity and Universality.ö Radiation nurses and therapists were educated weekly for 6 weeks. Examples of cultural groups, values, patterns and health beliefs were presented and were followed by open discussions. A Transcultural Manual was presented and on hand in the department to assist in delivering effective nursing care. Improvement in educating patients in the radiation department is necessary for successful delivery of care to the culturally diverse population. The goal of this project was met by elevating the level of delivery of culturally sensitive client care by using ôThe Theory of Culture Care, Diversity and Universality.ö The staff learned to identify, describe, and examine this theory and use this new knowledge to better understand health care practices within various cultural groups. The new model of care presented to the educators in a radiation oncology practice not only increased awareness; it helped nurture a positive, supportive and caring relationship between the staff and their patients, families, and community. Future studies are imperative using this model of care. Culture care knowledge is essential in guiding the nurse educator.
