It can be frustrating to care for patients whose cultural backgrounds and traditions differ from our own, and the temptation may be strong to dismiss religious or cultural traditions as mere superstition. Our failure to recognize the needs of culturally diverse patients can lead to compromised outcomes. This video training emphasizes the need for healthcare workers to avoid cultural stereotypes and to resist the temptation to judge or dismiss cultural practices that differ from our own.

The training video presents examples of various traditional remedies and practices and discusses the need to view them within the context of the culture and distinguish those that are truly harmful from those that are not. Several scenarios are used to demonstrate how a rush to judgment by a healthcare worker could create an adverse outcome for the patient and his or her family.

This training helps healthcare professionals better understand how to relate to those of diverse backgrounds and develop strategies to provide the care and assistance patients may need. It also depicts how stereotypes may compromise the quality of patient care, with sometimes devastating consequences. This video provides a compassionate and effective call to action on the part of healthcare workers to treat each person as an individual whose cultural traditions and beliefs should be respected.
