"I have found this book helpful. Many fundamentals books gloss over the concept of cultural competence and students feel they understand until they are confronted with a clinical situation. This book provides an opportunity for readers to gain a deeper and more practical understanding."--Doody's Medical Reviews Offering a how-to approach to the development and application of cultural competency skills in nursing, this text provides numerous techniques for cultural self-assessment and cultural patient assessment. Its unique framework for self-assessment--considered to be a highly important facet of developing culturally competent nursing care--is based on the Cultural Competency Staircase Model, a self-assessment model developed by the author who has over 30 years of clinical practice in culturally diverse settings. The text begins by defining cultural competency and describes how nurses can use the Staircase Model to determine their level of cultural competence. Emphasis is placed on developing cross-cultural communication skills and resolving cross-cultural conflicts. The book provides tools for the cultural assessment of patients and focuses on working with culturally diverse colleagues and patient populations. Using case vignettes, it presents problematic clinical scenarios related to cultural diversity and discusses how to resolve them. Each chapter opens with learning objectives and glossary terms and ends with key points, NCLEX-RN review questions and a list of additional resources.The AACN Cultural Competencies for Baccalaureate Graduates are addressed in each chapter. Key Features: Provides multiple strategies to assist nurses in facilitating cultural competency Introduces an easy-to-follow self-assessment model for nursing students and novice nurses Covers working with culturally diverse colleagues, care of bariatric patients, and care of new immigrants Includes challenging case scenarios drawn from real life situations Designed for use throughout undergraduate curriculum

Newly revised and updated, Delivering Culturally Competent Nursing Care, Second Edition explores the cross-cultural interactions and conflicts between nurses and the diverse array of patients they may see. Culturally-competent nurses can cut through preconceptions, reduce health disparities, and deliver the high-quality care. Patients come from a variety of countries, hold specific religious beliefs, or identify with a unique sexual orientation. Nurses, as frontline providers for diverse populations, are expected to treat each patient with empathy and respect. Delivering Culturally Competent Nursing Care, Second Edition addresses what it really means to be culturally competent in nursing practice. Representatives of specific cultural, racial, ethnic, and socio-political groups, nurses bring their own values, beliefs, and attitudes to all interactions with patients and with one another. Whether nurses choose to make their attitudes explicit or not, they ultimately influence the quality of care they provide to patients. Content is grounded in the Staircase model, which builds upon the nurse's own self-assessment to identify personal limitations, find strategies to improve cultural competence, and progress to the next level. This text features case scenarios that apply the process of cultural competence to different healthcare situations.

Major changes are occurring in the United States population and the nation's health care institutions and delivery systems. Significant disparities in health status exist across population groups. But the health care enterprise, with all its integrated and disparate parts, has been slow to respond. Written by three nationally known scholars and experts, Diversity and Cultural Competence in Health Care: A Systems Approach is designed to provide health care students and professionals with a clear understanding of foundations, philosophies, and processes that strengthen diversity management, inclusion, and culturally competent care delivery. Focusing on current practice and health care policy, including the recently passed Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 (ACA), this textbook integrates strategic diversity management, self-reflective leadership, and the personal change process with culturally and linguistically appropriate care into a cohesive systems-oriented approach for health care professionals. The essentials of cultural competence and diversity management covered in this text will be helpful to a wide variety of students because they encompass principles and practices that can be realistically incorporated into the ongoing work of any health care field or organization. Each chapter contains learning objectives, summary, key terms, and review questions and activities designed to allow students to understand and explore concepts and practices identified throughout the text.
