Final

Workplace Educational Plan

Purpose

The purpose of this Assignment is to gain practical experience using the tools, organizations, and communication skills learned to design an educational strategies program for colleagues in your specific workplace or educational institution.

Critical thinking will be used to create an educational program based on the educational needs of two culturally diverse populations. You will also explore the cultural competence of your current work (or educational) facility, tools, and organizations already in place, and how you can help your colleagues understand the populations they are caring for each day. You will identify problem areas and resolutions to address them in your plan.

After you have written your educational plan, share it with a colleague at work. Talk to them about your thoughts, your goals, and why you feel the interventions will be effective. Have your colleague fill out this survey following their review of your educational plan. You will attach your survey to the Unit 10 Dropbox in addition to your Assignment.

Assignment Details

Identifying Cultural Needs

Purpose

The purpose of this Assignment is to analyze the health concerns facing different cultures and to compare cultural health practice and belief differences.

Directions

Communities provide distinctive environments for examining culture.

You have explored:

  • care of the adult population from differing global cultures
  • the many cultural health practices and belief differences of cultures
  • the use of evidence-based practice to support culturally competent care
  • the role of the nurse in providing care in different healthcare systems

Now, you will apply this knowledge to your own environment.

  • Conduct a literature review of five evidence-based, peer-reviewed resources related to best practices for providing culturally competent care across the lifespan related to two different cultures.
  • Create a 5–10-slide PowerPoint presentation, excluding the title and reference page(s) that includes the following information:
    • List the two different cultural populations you have chosen.
      • what region(s) they are from
      • language(s) spoken
      • any other pertinent information about the populations
    • Compare cultural health practices and beliefs of the two patient populations.
      • Give a clear description of each populations’ basic beliefs on health care from birth to death
        • labor and delivery
        • pediatrics
        • adults
        • elderly/aging
        • death
      • Varying health issues that are typical among the population (i.e., Eastern European: Tay-Sachs, African American: Sickle Cell Disease, etc.).
      • Identify, based on the literature, three specific and detailed culturally competent practices for the transcultural nurse to apply for each culture identified (six total).

Be creative. Use images, charts, animations, and anything else you may need to accurately get your point across to the reader.

You must include speaker’s notes to elaborate on the information you provide in the slides. Please review the tips below for further guidance on creating a meaningful Microsoft® PowerPoint® presentation.

Here are a few tips:

  1. Use the notes section of PowerPoint. It is very useful for writing out the majority of the information you want to present. The slides should be clutter free, simple, and with bullets. Keep it clear and concise.
  2. You MUST use citations and references. For clarification: citations are in the body of your work and are for paraphrased items/phrases and directly quoted items/phrases. References go at the end of the project on the last slide. The listed reference should match the authors’ names in the citations. They always go hand in hand. You cannot have references without citations, or vice versa.
  3. You do need to cite and reference pictures if they are from a webpage, book, or journal. You do not need to cite and reference pictures from clipart.
  4. Use the Assignment instructions (items 1–4) to title your slides so you do not miss any important topics for the Assignment.

Directions

You read about a number of health care delivery systems throughout the world.

  4. The effectiveness of the healthcare system for the population (3–4 paragraphs)
  5. A brief comparison to the U.S. healthcare system (may use a simple chart or table)
  6. Conclusion (1 paragraph)

Note: The number of paragraphs is a suggestion, not a requirement, and the evaluative essay should be continuous writing with a sustained point of view. Learner autonomy can be used to develop the amount of content you include within the page limitations of the Assignment.

You must include at least three evidence-based, peer-reviewed resources to support your ideas. These include .gov and .org professional websites, journal articles, and your textbook(s).
