ADVOCACY AND ITS ROLE IN CULTURAL DIVERSITY.

This week you will examine how to be a patient advocate for all individuals, particularly those who are from a different culture than your own.

First, consider an ethical dilemma that you have encountered in your own nursing practice—choose one that was caused by a misunderstanding between people from different cultures. Describe that situation clearly.
How did each group or individual perceive the dilemma? (Present both sides, objectively.)
Identify the conflicting values and belief systems held by each group.
What data was missing—what information did the health care providers not have about the patient’s culture?
Next, define culturally congruent care.
