It trains health care providers to overcome cultural barriers like communication and language. Cultural competency has the potential to reduce inequities in access to health care services and improve the health status of cultural communities by reducing healthcare disparities. The goal of cultural competency is to provide health care to the community that is respectful of and responsive to the needs of diverse patients. It helps the health care provider to understand the needs of patients while seeking treatment. It helps to patient-provider to meet on common ground in the diagnosis and treatment plan of the disease.
Operational clinical management has been connected to an extensive variety of roles. It is a prerequisite of clinic care, as well as organization performance, accomplishment of health transformation intentions, well-timed care distribution, organization reliability and competence, and is an essential element of the health care structure (Graling, 2008). The significance of operational medical management in guaranteeing an extraordinary quality health care structure that dependably delivers safe and effective care and has been repeated in the educated writings and a number of administration reports (Popescu, 2013). Many analyses, directives, and information have encouraged clinician commitment and medical management dire to successful value and safety. As one Australian sample, a major importance of nursing recommendation of the Garling Report was that Nurse Unit Manager (NUM) positions be studied and considerably remodeled “to enable the NUM to undertake clinical leadership in the supervision of patients […] to guarantee that for at least 70% of the NUM’s time is applied to clinical duties.” (Graling, 2008).
In the light of the undeniable correlation between privacy and dignity in care and the quality of care delivery; moreover, concluding findings of Francis Report (2013), the NHS embedded those issues in healthcare development framework. To improve quality of care, identify good practice and promote patient - centred care Department of Health introduced ‘Essence of Care’ benchmark. One of ten benchmarks depicts respect and dignity and describes best practices to ensure those values are maintained in care likewise identify general issues affecting best practice. To preserve dignity healthcare staff must consider various factors like: individual needs including ethnicity or religion, protecting patient’s confidentiality and ensure safety and respect personal boundaries. Best practice might be additionally compromised by poor leadership, lack of appropriate training or poor documentation (DH,
 This paradigm is useful as it enables practitioners to proactively and purposefully put into action a connected system of values and principles across the phases of a health promotion process. The principle that authorises the value of holistic health is that health incorporates interrelated dimensions of spiritual, mental, social and physical health and wellbeing.  Moreover, key values and principles the Red Lotus model includes are ensuring that needs assessment processes incorporate the perspectives of all stakeholders and prioritising work with communities that are most marginalised, vulnerable, disadvantaged
The facilities enforcing protocols and policies to secure that employees are meeting government regulations. Doctors, nursing staff and support staff I must use their best ethical and moral judge in most case to ensure patients are being retreated. Thus, sometimes causing conflict with health care administration because health care workers sometimes unknowingly break policies or protocol by putting patients first. As well as hospitals and clinics have so many departments that there can be conflict of interest with patient care that can cause inconsistency with patient care (Santilli, J. el al., 2015, Para
Introduction The growing cultural changes in the United States provide opportunities and challenges in healthcare for providers, systems, and policy makers. There is a growing consensus amongst healthcare workers that it is necessary to produce and provide culturally competent services. Cultural competence is defined as “the ability of providers and organizations to effectively deliver health care services that meet the social, cultural, and linguistic needs of patients” (Seeleman et al, 2015). A major topic of discussion amongst health professionals at industry conferences is the improvement of health outcomes and quality of care- specifically the contribution of culturally competent cares towards the elimination of racial and ethnic health disparities. More and more Plans to move the health care system towards the goal of cultural competence is being realized due to the health implications of being stagnant (Seeleman et al, 2015).
Advocating for the creation and adaptation of policies to insure honesty, quality and access is part of the policy competencies (Thomas et al., 2011). By utilizing the tools in the Adaption Model, nurse practitioners can adapt health care policy across disciplines, and assess the impact globalization will have on the creation of policy. Adaptability allows for the creation of policies for a variety of patients. There are great variations in ethnicity, religion, environmental factors and rituals that must be accounted for when creating health care policy. The ability to adapt knowledge and ideas into ethical policies and practice contributes to the creation of successful and quality healthcare (Current Nursing,
There are different forms of communication such as verbal and written communication. Verbal communication between staff is important during patient care. Staff have to communicate about the procedures, the patient and other requirements needed for effective patient care. Communication is a two way process therefore it needs to be clarified and reinforced and reflected back by repetition to show understanding. For example, in theatre the scrub ODP will count instruments aloud and the numbers of instruments are confirmed by another ODP to show the agreement of everything they will use or have used.
This would in turn make it difficult for human resources to effectively assess and implement any necessary changes to staffing, policies or procedures. Although these risks may be present, I believe the benefit of understanding staff concerns and patient interactions far outweighs certain team members being uncomfortable discussing diversity. Organizations set missions and goals to be culturally competent and able to serve the community, the patients and the employees that represent them, therefore, training and assessments are required to measure where they presently stand and where they need to be in the near
The health care system is multiplex. The many elements that form complex relationships within the health care system can cause problems. One problem is inadequate quality issues. However, the health care leaders desire to fix the poor quality problems that exist in healthcare (Chassin, 2013). Hospitals are spending more capital, time, and vitality to improve quality and safety matters (Chassin, 2013).
