DQ 2 : How does the community health nurse recognize bias, stereotypes, and implicit bias within the community?

How does the community health nurse recognize bias, stereotypes, and implicit bias within the
community? How should the nurse address these concepts to ensure health promotion activities
are culturally competent? Propose strategies that you can employ to reduce cultural dissonance
and bias to deliver culturally competent care. Include an evidence-based article that address the
cultural issue. Cite and reference the article in APA format.

Classroom Assessment Tool summary (CATs): Culturally Competent
In this forum, we discussed the importance of recognizing bias, stereotypes, and implicit bias
within the community. Discuss one way we as nurses can become more culturally competent in
order to provide better patient-centered care to our patients and community.

Professor Hannah,
Great question! Nurses can become more culturally competent in a number of ways. One way
is to receive training on cultural competence. "This training can help nurses to understand the
importance of culture in healthcare and how to provide culturally competent care". Training in
cultural competence should be ongoing and evolve as the healthcare system and the
population changes. Nurses should also work with patients from a variety of cultural
backgrounds. This can help nurses to understand the needs of different patients and how to
best meet those needs. It also includes an understanding of the impact of culture on the
healthcare, and the ability to communicate effectively with people from other cultures.

In order for a community health nurse to provide the best possible care to all patients in the
community, they must be able to recognize bias, and stereotypes. They do this by having an
understanding about the diversity of the community they are caring for, and the different cultures
that exist in the community as well. To be a good community health nurse, you must show cultural
competence. Cultural competence is to be respectful and responsive to the health beliefs and
practices as well as cultural and linguistic needs of diverse population groups (Falkner, 2018).
Cultural competence is the ability to interact effectively with people of different cultures, belief
systems, and preferences. In so doing, community health nurses demonstrate respect and
responsiveness to health beliefs and practices (Falkner, 2018). This means that the nurse must
take her own cultural beliefs and practices and set them aside when caring for a patient who might
not have the same views and values. One article written by Cuevas, A., O'brien, K., Saha, S., titled
What is the Key to Culturally Competent Care: Reducing Bias or Cultural Tailoring concluded that
evidence based practice suggests that a patient-centered approach to cultural competency
training, responsive to individual patient concerns and coupled with general knowledge of the
cultural context of the major population groups being cared for, may reduce disparities in the
quality of care patients receive (Cuevas, A., O'brien, K., Saha, S., 2017).

Hello Jessica,
I agree with your statement that the first thing the nurse must do to provide culturally
competent care while eliminating bias and stereotypes is to self-reflect on their own biases
and then take purposeful actions to not allow those biases to affect their view of their patients
or the care that they provide to their patients. This describes “emotional regulation,” a strategy
for mitigating implicit bias identified by Narayan, the author of Addressing Implicit Bias in
Nursing: A Review. Narayan continues to explain that nurses must purposefully find ways to
demonstrate empathy, patience, and compassion (Narayan, 2019). I think this strategy is one
we have all had to use whether we realized it or not. What do you think?
