Guidelines for Implementing Culturally Competent Care

Postby jb@icn » 11 Jul 2014, 14:34

ICN has endorsed the Guidelines for Implementing Culturally Competent Care developed by a collaborative task force of members of the American Academy of Nursing’s (AAN) Expert Panel on Global Nursing and Health and the Transcultural Nursing Society. The guidelines are meant to serve as a resource for nurses in various roles – clinical practice, administrators, researchers and educators – by emphasising cultural competence as a priority of care for the populations they serve. They are designed to be adapted to the sociocultural context and unique health care delivery system of the user.

The link to the journal where the guidelines were published is:
Journal of Transcultural Nursing 2014; Vol. 25:109-121

Hi. my name is Janet and I am a nurse academic working in England, UK. Thank-you for the link to these guidelines. I will read these with interest. I just wanted to let people know about the approach being taken to cultural competence in care in the UK as outlined in a recent report published in the UK entitled the Cultire of care Barometer: see link http://www.kcl.ac.uk/nursing/research/n ... meter.aspx
I would be interested to hear any feedback from colleagues about this approach.
Best wishes
Janet
