Providing Culturally Sensitive Care competency is a pressing and relevant topic in today’s multicultural communities. Healthcare workers are increasingly likely to work with persons of diverse backgrounds, including varying nationalities, races, and religions. These professionals must first be introduced to self-reflexive consideration of how their own self-selected, as well as socially assigned, identities effect their personal perceptions and biases. With an understanding of how they personally function within their private and professional lives they can then advance to exploring basic understandings of others and begin to work with a sense of “cultural humility” as they provide care. Together we will explore our individual webs of identity and discover how this impacts our perspectives of social justice.

Learning Objectives:

Objective 1: Participants will be able to describe their own current cultural identities and identify their chosen, as well as socially assigned, roles and be able to reflect on how their experiences influence their personal behaviors and biases.
Objective 2: Participants will be able to critique their personal perceptions of various diverse populations and demonstrate heightened cultural awareness and sensitivity with regards to different populations.
Objective 3: Participants will be able to compare the vast diversity that exists within every community and be able to assess needs on an individual, rather than stereotypical, level.
Objective 4: Participants will be able to compare various populations with regards to power, discrimination, and privilege and discuss how being a member of marginalized groups impacts maternal-child health and birth outcomes.
