Providing Culturally Sensitive Care
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.
