Today’s health care provider will be delivering health care in a transcultural environment. This environment may well present consumer-provider challenges that create barriers to quality care for consumers and to a positive sense of competence and satisfaction for the provider. This course provides students with the opportunity to gain an appreciation for delivering health care within the environment of continuously changing vulnerable, racial, ethnic, and cultural demographics. Students will learn communication concepts related to the principles and techniques designed to provide the student with an awareness and knowledge of appropriate means of interactivity with diverse health care consumers. The student will learn to apply the concepts when gathering data for assessment, developing plans of care, and delivering quality health care.
