Cultural Considerations in Mental Health Nursing

Cultural Considerations in Mental Health Nursing.

Submit an evidence-based practice paper about cultural competency in
mental health nursing. An evidence-based practice paper allows you to
explore best practice and help improve client outcomes on a psychiatric
unit. Your paper should describe how you, as a nurse, will include – or
have included – cultural awareness in a client diagnosed with a mental
illness. The person you describe could be someone in your clinical
setting, someone you have worked with in the past, or a theoretical
client.

Remember that culture can also include gender equality, sexual
orientation, and other cultures besides race and religion – including
cultures unique to one particular family. Your paper should be at least 3
pages (double-spaced, not including the title or reference pages) in
APA Format and include: Cultural Considerations in Mental Health Nursing

  • Assessment: Discuss what you would assess in
    regard to a client’s culture. For example, are there specific dietary
    requirements? Are schedule changes necessary to avoid conflicts with
    religious practices? Who is the spokesperson for the family? What would
    you assess?
  • Diagnosis: List any mental health nursing diagnoses this person has or may be at risk for. Include at least one cultural diagnosis.
  • Planning: What planning needs to be done to ensure the cultural and emotional safety of the client?
  • Implementation: What interventions would ensure your client’s safety in regard to culture? Include at least
    two interventions. For example, if your client has religious beliefs
    that affect the ability to take medications, what interventions would
    you create to ensure the client’s safety? What can you do to make sure
    the client’s cultural needs are met?
  • Evaluation: How will you evaluate whether your implementation was effective? Make sure the parameters are objective and measurable.
  • In your summary, discuss whether any completed
    interventions were successful. What could be done differently in the
    future? If the interventions have not yet been carried out, you might
    discuss some institutional changes that could be made to ensure cultural
    safety for all clients in that setting.

Your paper should utilize proper APA guidelines and include at least
three scholarly sources to support your paper. A scholarly source is a
source that has been peer reviewed and has appropriate authors that are
credentialed. For more information on APA, please visit the Online Library.
