Cultural Sensitivity

People of different cultures have unique beliefs, values, and practices. These differences make it challenging to offer health care that accommodates each individual. Some members of religious groups don’t believe in certain types of treatments, while other people may respond to pain and illness in unique ways. Those working in the health care field, particularly in nursing, must be aware of cultural differences and use sensitivity when treating each patient. As you work toward your LPN program, keep the following areas of awareness and sensitivity in mind:

  • Faith and Religious Beliefs
  • Social and Economic Sensitivity
  • Trust and Respect

Cultural Competence

We are going to watch a video that shows the cultural competency. It’s not easy to overcome your own cultural worldview when treating patients, but it is a critical skill to develop for all within the nursing field.
