Teaching Cultural Competence in Nursing and Health Care, Third Edition

The Feminist Press at CUNY, 2015

by, Marianne R. Jeffreys EdD, RN

Based on proven research, this textbook is a unique “how-to” for nursing faculty called upon to educate students, nurses, and other health care providers on how to provide optimal care for culturally diverse populations. It offers a systematic approach featuring ready-to-use materials for planning, implementing, and evaluating cultural competence education strategies and programs. A wealth of practical information on all aspects of culturally competent communication and treatment—in both classroom and workplace settings--is supplemented with an assessment and evaluation toolkit that can be adapted for all educational levels. The third edition is reorganized to facilitate the incorporation of cultural competence into a greater variety of environments, and provides additional examples and case studies to better illustrate content. Updated and revised information, research findings, and expanded ready-to-apply strategies and exemplars are woven throughout all chapters. New and expanded chapters address curriculum; traditional classrooms, hybrid, and online courses; and clinical settings, immersion experiences, service learning, simulation, and nursing skills lab. Included are educational activities for academic, clinical, and professional association settings. Integrated reflection boxes, easy-to-apply action steps, toolkit resource boxes, references, and discussion questions help students to fully integrate the book’s content. The text fulfills Cultural Competence accreditation requirements for undergraduate nursing programs and for institutions trying to obtain Magnet Status.
