Reflecting the diverse nature of today's society, a health care worker must adapt his or her practices to the cultural, ethnic, and religious needs of patients. In fact, the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Health Care Organizations states that all industry workers must familiarize themselves with the significance of cultural differences. This program provides nurses and other health professionals with practical and effective methods of recognizing, respecting, and meeting cultural needs. Topics include conducting an initial cultural assessment, addressing food- and language-related challenges, understanding religious customs, and becoming a client advocate. Includes detailed conversations with members of specific cultural groups, including Haitian, Peruvian, Indian, Bangladeshi, and Jewish communities.
