Abstract:
Poster Presentation: Objective: Understand cultural competence as perceived by nursing personnel in the clinical setting. Support and promote cultural competency for nursing personnel through a Cultural Competency Council (CCC). Purpose: To assess hospital nursing personnel knowledge of culturally competent nursing care for the hospitalized patient. To educate hospital nursing personnel about culturally competent nursing care. Design: This was a cross sectional survey conducted in a large urban, tertiary medical center with an increasingly diverse patient population. A 12-question survey developed by Giger & Davidhizar (2004) was distributed to nursing personnel including nursing attendants, patient unit clerks and registered professional nurses. Of 970 surveys distributed, 484 were returned (49.8%). Respondents were given the correct answers to each question upon survey completion. Analyses: Responses were tabulated using SPSS version 13.0. Questions that had an incorrect response rate of 25% or more were considered areas to be addressed. Results were calculated by individual unit and overall. Results: Areas targeted for staff education included (1) eliminating one's own prejudices or negative assumptions about certain types of patients; (2) discussing cultural differences and beliefs without being judgmental for new admissions during assessment; and (3) learning the process for obtaining an interpreter. Implications for Nursing Practice: This study identified the needs of nursing staff in relation to Cultural Competency in the clinical setting. From these results the Departments of Nursing, Cultural Competency Council will develop a program that addresses the needs specifically identified in the survey.
