Summary:

In August 2008, The Joint Commission began developing accreditation standards for hospitals to promote, facilitate, and advance the provision of culturally competent patient-centered care. These standards, which reflect the findings of published reports such as, “One Size Does Not Fit All: Meeting the Healthcare Needs of Diverse Populations,” were approved in December 2009, went into effect for hospitals in January 2011, and began affecting accreditation decisions in 2012. In today’s multicultural healthcare environment, caregivers cannot make assumptions about patients’ behaviors based on their own cultural backgrounds. This continuing education module helps healthcare professionals understand the impact of culture on women’s health beliefs and practices, and their responses to current approaches to care.

Objectives:

The goal of this continuing education program is to raise awareness among healthcare providers and promote understanding of the impact of culture on women’s health beliefs and practices, and their responses to current approaches to care. After studying the information presented here, you will be able to:
  • Describe cultural influences on women’s health beliefs and practices
  • Discuss how to work appropriately within the framework of cultural beliefs that may impact acceptance of or adherence to common preventive care recommendations
  • Develop culturally sensitive patient education and care
