CultureVision™ can assist your organization in meeting guidelines outlined by the Office of Minority Health National Culturally and Linguistically Appropriate Services (CLAS), National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA), and National Association of Social Workers.
How Does CultureVision Work?
It's as simple as 1-2-3. Let's say a Chinese patient comes into labor and delivery. A nurse wants to know if there are any specific cultural traits or patterns that they should know about. What are the pertinent questions to ask? Any medications, or diseases that are particularly relevant to this group? The nurse simply logs onto the CultureVision website. Next, click on to the Chinese section and finally click “Labor, Birth and Aftercare.” Just that quickly you have the information you are looking for, and within minutes you are contributing to a better healthcare experience for the patient.
A Simple Tool
The more you know about someone's healthcare beliefs or practices, the more your care and treatment plans can be designed for the best health outcomes possible: Those which take into account your patient's world view. Transcultural health care focuses on the cultural beliefs and lifestyles of diverse groups of people and on the use of this knowledge to provide culturally appropriate patient care.
