Respecting Cultural Diversity During Perioperative Care

Speaker: Mary J. Ogg, MSN, RN, CNOR

Date: December 17, 2014
Time: 1pm (PT); 2pm (MT); 3pm (CT); 4pm (ET)

Overview: As perioperative nurses, we are prepared to identify and meet the clinical needs of our surgical patients. Patients also have unique characteristics and nonclinical needs that can affect their perioperative experience. Identification of cultural and spiritual practices, mobility, communication style, and preferred language are important in providing safe patient care. Effective health care provider-patient communication is vital in the critical area of surgical care. This webinar will raise awareness and provide methods to assist perioperative personnel to meet the unique needs of every patient to deliver quality care and ensure safety.

Objectives: 

  • Describe effective alternative communication strategies for successful patient-health care provider interactions in the perioperative area.
  • Identify how cultural and spiritual competence can be integrated into the care of the perioperative patient.
  • Identify innovative resources to assist perioperative personnel to promote patient- and family-centered care during the surgical experience.
