Transcultural awareness in nursing practice
Economic and demographic changes are contributing to the globalization of the American economy. The forces that are changing the economy and society at large are also causing changes in American healthcare delivery. To provide higher quality and more cost effective outcomes for the client, the healthcare industry must find ways to serve diverse populations with greater sensitivity. Recent emphasis on community health, managed care, preventive, and primary care are causing American healthcare to become more culturally responsive. The purpose of this study is to examine the development of transcultural nursing theory, as well as the forces contributing to a rebirth of interest in the topic. The study also includes a review of some of the significant literature on the topic, from 1970 to the present. Also included is a history of the development of transcultural nursing theory beginning with Dr. Madeleine Leininger.
