Culturally Aligned Health Care: Implications for Patient Care and the Nursing Profession.
Journal Article (Journal Article)
Professional nurses utilize person-centered/patient-centered models of care to provide meaningful and effective healing or promotion of wellness. Using their skills, knowledge, and expertise, nurses are poised to lead quality improvement efforts that enhance patient outcomes, reduce inequities among populations, and contain costs. Culturally aligned organizational models are built on key concepts of cultural competency, patient- and family-centered care, and diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging concepts. Nurses are poised to lead cultural alignment innovations across health-care professional teams, using their foundational skills to enhance quality and safety across the health-care spectrum.
