Cultural & Spiritual Sensitivity – A Learning Module for Health Care Professionals
http://bit.ly/fjDF3A
Health care professionals are entrusted to care for patients as whole persons – body, mind and spirit. The health care approach is interdisciplinary and encompassing. It is important, then, for that approach to be culturally and spiritually sensitive. In addition, health care professionals need to be empowered with the capacity, skills, and knowledge to respond to the unique needs of each patient and their loved ones. The Joint Commission is developing proposed accreditation requirements for hospitals to advance effective communication, cultural competence, and patient-centered care. Implementation is expected to begin January 2011.
