The nurse is to protect the patient and utilize resources to prevent harm and enhance the patient’s overall well-being (Ahmadi & Sadeghi, 2017)
Leininger’s Culture Care Model Understanding diverse cultures is critical when providing patient care. Culturally competent care exists when culture care values, beliefs, expressions, and patterns are respected and honored by those of different or similar cultures. Nurses must listen attentively about patient’s wishes This model shows respect to the patient’s values and needs and establishes a partnership between the nurse and the patient to ensure safe, beneficent, and culturally congruent care is provided. (Smith & Parker, 2015)

Barriers/ Method to Overcome Barrier : Stereotype Method To Overcome: Not all cultures have the same values, beliefs, or religious views. Nurses must not look at a patient and simply know what their values and beliefs are. The best way to over come stereotyping is to never assume. Always ask the patient what cultural needs, requirements, or restrictions that they may have. Patient’s of different cultures feel respected and appreciate when healthcare professionals take their culture and values into consideration. For nursing to be productive nurses must be culturally sensitive and respectful in all aspects of patient care Barrier : Gender Roles Method to Overcome : Many cultures expect to be treated and cared for by a person of the same gender. If a provider of the same sex is not available, speak with the patient and the family.
