Welcome to Week 6

This week’s focus is the intersection of communication and collaboration in the role of the APN. According to the Merriam-Weber the definition of networking is the exchange of information or services among individuals, groups, or institutions. Collaboration with other professionals is pivotal to survival as a provider. No one can know all or provide services for all conditions. The APN scope of practice dictates the parameters of practice. What would APN do if the patient’s condition is beyond the scope of practice for the APN? You would refer to our colleagues with the skills to provider those services. Building referral sources will require the APN to network with others. In this week’s reading you will also explore the impact of culture on communication and conflict resolution in building relationship

Discussion Topic

 

Points: 20 | Due Date: Week 6, Day 5 & 7 | CLO: 4 | Grade Category: Discussions

Discussion Prompt

Cultural competency means to be respectful and responsive to the health beliefs and practices—and cultural and linguistic needs—of diverse population groups. Discuss strategies to provide care to patients who are from different cultures and may have different cultural beliefs. For example, what might the APN do if the patient refuses a high-quality, evidence-based treatment meant to cure the illness because of cultural beliefs? How can the APN respect cultural beliefs while still providing quality care? In what ways can the nurse do more than simply “do no harm?”
