COVID-19 Response Webinar Series hosted by the American Association of Colleges of Nursing

Our cultural beliefs and values about health/illness/treatment, and those of our patients, may not align. As nurses, we must find common ground in order to provide culturally sensitive care. During this pandemic we can make a difference by leveraging opportunities and tools to mitigate implicit bias. In addition to providing quality healthcare, we can acknowledge our patient’s cultural beliefs related to health and illness and integrate this information into the plan of care.
