Mentioning the efficiency of doctors and their scientific and practical testimony, and featuring the technical expertise, scientific evidence, and facilities to show the public that we have the best doctors with best technology.

It has exposed me to how things such as race, social class, income, access to resources, environment, and many other things has an outstanding impact on the quality and quantity of health care they receive. Through this program I hope to learn the fundamentals of community based research, how to advocate for health policy, a most importantly how to educate communities on health.

Knowing that I changed that life, that because of me hopefully their health will better instead of worsen.
Because of this implanted motivation, nurses are reinforced to reach higher levels of growth. Nurses also feel that they are valued when transformational leaders reach out to them; they get excited to participate and share their knowledge that also contributes to strong cooperation or openness. The real benefit goes to their patients during their intervention, when transformational nurse leader listens attentively to the needs of their patients. This leadership style also increases the image and reputation of the hospital or clinic within the community that they
Beach, Saha, and Cooper (2006) concisely summarize the prominence of cultural competency in the following manner: “Both patient-centeredness and cultural competence aim to improve health care quality, but each emphasizes different aspects of quality. The primary goal of the patient-centeredness movement has been to provide individualized care and restore an emphasis on personal relationships. It aims to elevate quality for all patients. Alternatively, the primary aim of the cultural competence movement has been to increase health equity and reduce disparities by concentrating on people of color and other disadvantaged populations” (p. 7). Culturally competent nurses advocates for patients regardless of cultural differences.
Policies like this make health choices possible and easier for people to enable them to choose to have a healthier lifestyle. It makes social and physical environments health-enhancing. “Health promotion goes beyond health care. It puts health on the agenda of policy makers in all sectors and at all levels, directing them to be aware of the health consequences of their decisions and to accept their responsibilities for health” (WHO, Health Promotion, 2014) If every decision was being made at both personal and government levels were approached from a health promotion rationale, over the longer term it could reduce the overall cost of Health Expenditure by promoting people to take an active role in enhancing their health education. For example due to the new water charges, older people may worry about the cost of water and be less hygienic, young parents may not give children a bath quite so often, these changes may have a detrimental effect on people’s
Hi Jessa, I commend you for sharing your profound insight. I completely agree that focusing on changing the fundamental aspect in which health care is delivered plays a significant role in saving or reducing health cost for patients and hospitals. In addition, a collaborative approach that includes the patient and allow them to participate in routine care will net better health result and reduce emergency visits to the hospital. when people are working together and feel like they are part of a team with a shared purpose, then professionalism is enhanced, trust among group members is increased, communication flows better, and satisfaction of those on the team is increased (Freshman, Rubino, and Chassiakos, 2011). Healthy collaborative relationships
Patient empowerment: Patient empowerment in the global pictures is seen as a part of the human side of care. It is time consuming and sits uncomfortably with strong pressures towards greater efficiency. The outcome is satisfying, with mutual trust and confidence are established. Being a Malaysian I am proud to say that Malaysia Ministry of Health, had strongly support patient empowerment and community to be responsible for their health. It is believed that, regulations and enforcement activities are the tools to facilitate and enhanced individuals and the communities towards self empowerment.
Limiting language barriers Because of the overwhelming evidence that cultural competence in healthcare add to better health outcomes, an obligation towards culturally competent care is growing among healthcare organizations. Healthcare organizations are starting to incorporate broad approaches to answer to the requirements of racial and cultural minorities. In addition, there are progressively more government guidelines that dictate better awareness of health organizations towards the increasing population diversity. Also, numerous health care organizations are concluding that creating and employing a cultural competence strategy is a noteworthy business move that augments the attention and contribution of both providers and patients (Dejesus, 2008) Growing the cultural competence of health systems also has the benefit of minimizing organizational and language barrier. The literature review demonstrates that culturally competent healthcare organizations create policies that attempt to address cultural concerns on all levels, from the establishment's Executive leadership to clinicians and administrative workers.
Goals/Objectives EHR has many goals that healthcare providers in hospitals try and accomplish. These achievements are the enhanced usability of the tools, improved evaluation and the mechanism of the tools, and to provide developmental education to the healthcare staff.

The requirement for excellent skills of communication in healthcare is paramount in delivering optimal care and in facilitating health promotion. Good communication ultimately leads to increased patient satisfaction and is one of the key elements in providing patient centred care. Conversely, it is inevitable that patients will become distressed with health conditions when skills of communication are mediocre (Reynolds, 2004). Furthermore it must be recognised that effective communication extends beyond client and clinician and also includes carers of elderly patients whom may be involved in joint decision making. Hence the importance of the integration of the carer into the multi-disciplinary team.
The solution to overcoming this barrier would be cultural competence training. Cultural competence training has shown great promise at improving the knowledge, attitudes, and skills of health professionals when it comes to working with diverse populations (Mareno, 2014). I find that it would be good for every organization to establish a generalized diversity training for all staff to take. This training could discuss that its okay to ask a patient about their cultural and how we as a care provider could better meet their needs. This training could also discuss the topic of being self-aware.
