Culturally Competent Training for Health Professionals
For this discussion:
Discuss, as a leader in nursing, how you could assist in providing culturally competent health education on CAM, traditional medicine, and holistic health (including spirituality) to members of the health care team at your organization, or the organization you evaluated (from Unit 5). Consider the following questions in your response:
What steps would you take to assess the current cultural competence and prior knowledge, or preconceptions, of the group?
What topics would you suggest to include in the educational plan for this group?
What resources (Web sites, articles, organizations, and so forth) would you use in designing the educational program for this group?
Your initial posting should be at least 150 words, and you must reference the work of another writer (either as a quotation, paraphrase, or summary) to provide support for your ideas. The source can be the course text, another relevant book, any assigned reading, When you incorporate the other writer’s ideas in your work, use APA citation style to give credit to that writer. Remember that an APA citation includes both the in-text citation (the author’s last name and the year of publication) and the full reference for the source.
