The Course Outcome covered this week is CO2.
CO2: Communicate effectively with culturally diverse individuals, families, and organizations. (PO3)
As nurses, we work with providers and healthcare team members whose native language is not English. In fact, some of you may have interviewed a non-native English speaker for your Course Project. This diversity may lead to challenges with communication and the nurse being “caught in the middle.” Reflect on your newfound knowledge of transcultural nursing. Share an example of miscommunication that occurred as a result of this diversity and whether an adverse outcome resulted. Describe how the miscommunication could have been and will be prevented in the future.
