Cultural Respect & Competency—Caring for a Vulnerable Population in My Own Community

 

Effective health communication is as important to health care as clinical skill. To improve individual health and build healthy communities, providers need to recognize and address the unique culture, language, and health literacy of diverse consumers and communities. As Advanced Practice Nurses, we must be knowledgeable but also culturally savvy and understand the nuances of the populations that we serve.

 

Prior to writing this week’s discussion post, first, complete the self-assessment checklist, reflect upon the information you learned about yourself, and then review the following learning material:

 

  1. Cultural Competence Self-Assessment Checklist (PDF)
  2. National Institutes of Health: Cultural Respect
  3. Health Resources and Services Administration: Cultural Language and Health Literacy
  4. Effective Communication Tools 2016 (YouTube)
  5.  

For this discussion, identify a vulnerable population  ( HOMELESS FAMILIES)  in your own community. Describe the characteristics of this group—what makes them vulnerable—and utilize at least three scholarly resources to answer the following question 

 

  1. As an APRN, how will you strive to be culturally competent and respectful to those you serve? List and discuss at least three behaviors/characteristics of a culturally competent and respectful APRN.
