CS 20500 - Culturally Safe Healthcare: Inquiry & Practice


(4) This course on cultural safety in healthcare focuses on building self-awareness through examining personal cultural identities, beliefs, receptiveness, and flexibility in attitudes towards individuals from cultures different than one’s own.  Understanding culture requires an examination of the multiple layers of cultures where individuals live their lives.  It begins with developing a personal awareness of how multiple cultures influence thoughts, emotions and behaviors.  In modern healthcare environments, developing this awareness is a key component in establishing a culturally safe practice and it is essential in delivery of individualized interventions that support optimal health outcomes.  The history and cultures of Alaska Native People will provide the context for learning in this course.
