Unit Description This unit provides an opportunity for students to develop cultural competencies that enable them to provide safe practice in a culturally diverse health service delivery environment. The unit uses an interpersonal and interactive process that facilitates creation of a safe space for students to explore and deconstruct pre-existing knowledges, values and beliefs; learning hopes and expectations; and their `cultural self’. The students will explore ways in which their cultural values, attitudes and beliefs, (and those of health care organisations) impact and shape health care relationships.
Critically examine historical and contemporary influences on health care outcomes that enable or constrain culturally competent health care delivery.
Analyse the dimensions of culturally responsive health care including health literacy, health communication and cultural competence in order to improve work practice.
Implement strategies to ensure effective communication including the ability to assess the need for, and work appropriately with interpreters.
Define structural and relational power and analyse how this impacts on health care outcomes for people using health services.
Identify actions that need to be taken at individual, organisational and systemic levels of the work space, and apply the principles of cultural safety in their work settings.
