Culturally Competent Is The Psychiatric Research Paper

Excerpt from Research Paper :

This is reflected in the article under critique- Culturally competent psychiatric nursing care by Wilson (2010).As a consequence, the ever growing body of literature in this context is now extensively used in influencing the healthcare policy at both the local and national levels.

Qualitative researches are noted by Bowling (2002) to be necessary within the primary healthcare whenever researchers need to ask important questions concerning why patients as well as healthcare professionals act in particular way as well as to focus on the feelings, experiences as well as meanings of the participants.

In Wilson's (2010) work, qualitative research was used in providing an accurate description of the characteristics of the culturally competent psychiatric nursing care provided to African-Americans from the viewpoints of the client and the nurse. It is worth noting that the intensive scrutiny that qualitative research has been subjected to has also subjected it to necessary criticism. Isbister (2000) for instance noted that qualitative research is largely a mystery to several healthcare service researchers. Such views are however noted to be subjective and may be influenced by a bias in opinion.

Depict the conceptual framework used by the authors and the nursing theory application.

Campinha-Bacote (2003,p.20) noted that in the early 1960s, several healthcare theorists who were draw from various disciplines started to develop both theoretical and conceptual framework to be used for the assessment, planning as well as implementation of the culturally relevant health services for diverse populations. The work of Wilson (2010) which we are critiquing however appears to depict the application of the Culturally Competent Model of Care which treats cultural awareness, cultural skill, cultural encounter and cultural knowledge as critical components of the concept of
...According to this dynamic model, the concept of cultural competence is largely viewed as a continuous process and never as an end-point. The process is one that involves nurses continuously striving to work effectively within the existing cultural context of a person, families as well as communities that emanate from diverse ethnic/cultural backgrounds. This model is then applied within the concept of evidence-based practice within the healthcare settings.

Concluding paragraph: Do you agree or disagree with the author's conclusion. Substantiate (validate/prove) your response with citation/s.

I do agree with the author's conclusion since it reflects the true spirits of the Culturally Competent Model of Care which treats cultural awareness, cultural skill, cultural encounter and cultural knowledge as critical components of the concept of cultural competence. It is indeed true that the attitude, skill, knowledge as well as role of nurses in the provision of a culturally competent psychiatric/mental health care is a complex issue. The may perceive that they are indeed providing a culturally competent care when in reality they lack the requisite skills and knowledge as noted by Campinha-Bacote (2003).
