Improving cross-cultural awareness and skills to reduce health disparities in cancer.
Medsurg Nurs. 2008 Apr; 17(2):114-20; quiz 121.MN

Abstract

Delivering culturally sensitive care gives health professionals an opportunity to help reduce racial and ethnic disparities attributable to patient-provider interactions in the diverse settings across the continuum of care. Dealing with a cancer diagnosis is stressful; dealing with that diagnosis in a setting that is culturally unfamiliar or with a provider who speaks a different language can make the experience frightening. The nurse must be attuned to the cultural needs of the cancer patient and family members/significant others.
