P1 COURSE FOCUS ON CULTURAL COMPETENCE Care of Diverse Populations
Cultural Competence How would you define cultural competence? Why is it important to future health care practitioners?
Cultural Competence (NIH) “Culture is often described as the combination of a body of knowledge, a body of belief and a body of behavior. It involves a number of elements, including personal identification, language, thoughts, communications, actions, customs, beliefs, values, and institutions that are often specific to ethnic, racial, religious, geographic, or social groups. For the provider of health information or health care, these elements influence beliefs and belief systems surrounding health, healing, wellness, illness, disease, and delivery of health services. The concept of cultural competency has a positive effect on patient care delivery by enabling providers to deliver services that are respectful of and responsive to the health beliefs, practices and cultural and linguistic needs of diverse patients.”
Course Description This public health course will introduce the socioeconomic, cultural, ethnic, geographic, and various other variables which shape healthcare practice and perception. Students will become versed in common practices, myths, barriers, trends, resources, and care principles of diverse populations. An emphasis will be placed on the development of cultural competence such that students will be able to optimize professional and personal experiences with diverse patient populations. Students will be required to participate in community based experiences that support the course learning goals and objectives.
