Abstract:
Podium presentation, ANCC National Magnet Conference: The United States (US) and indeed, the majority of countries throughout the world, have an increasingly diverse population, whose cultural languages and belief systems impact health care experiences. Recognizing the significance of this issue, a twice designated Magnet health system developed a comprehensive, evidenced based cultural competency program that utilizes a compendium of strategies to assure the ideal patient (and caregiver) experience. Beginning with an in-depth, valid and reliable assessment of employee learning needs, coupled with patient and family input, the program includes, but is not limited to, a variety of staff educational resources addressing more than 30 cultural communities and in-house and tele-interpreter programs for more than 100 languages. The program has received multiple regional and state awards. This presentation will offer: an overview of the evidence and best practices associated with cultural awareness, including but not limited to, US federal standards for culturally and linguistically appropriate services and the four stages of trans-cultural competence; specific strategies employed by the presenting organization; and, case studies from a variety of inpatient, ambulatory and home health settings that addressed unique cultural needs within treatment plans for patients and families. Knowledge gained from this session is applicable to health care delivery in any setting, throughout the world.
