C‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍onsider the cultures that are represented in your area. Do you live in a rural, urban, or suburban area? Is there a particular religion or political affiliation that is prevalent? Is there an activity or lifestyle that has a specific knowledge and behavior set? Culture is not always related to race and ethnicity. It is also comprised of a group of people that share similar characteristics, knowledge, language, religion, cuisine, social habits, music, etc. As a nurse, it is your responsibility to provide high quality care to people from cultures different from your own and be aware of how culture might impact your ability to provide that care. In this Performance Task Assessment, you will create a 5- to 7-minute “podcast episode” in which you discuss some of the cultures in your are‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍a and how you, as a nurse leader, can help to ensure that every patient receives high quality care. In your podcast, address the following prompts. Identify two or more cultures that are represented in your community. Keep in mind the definition of culture and the fact that culture is not just about ethnicity. Describe how the differing cultures in your community interact. Explain how differences in culture can lead to poor patient outcomes. Explain how you and your colleagues can ensure that you are aware of these cultures and interactions and the traditions and norms that could impact how you, as a nurse, provide care. Encourage your colleagues to educate themselves about the cultures around them and how they, as nurse leaders, can use this information to provide high quality ‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍care.
