Human Diversity in Healthcare

This course examines the challenges associated with providing competent health care to diverse populations and examines its effects on the health of individuals, groups, and populations. Health behavior and health care outcomes are analyzed within the context of social, economic, political, and cultural forces. Implications of an increasingly diverse population for nursing education, research, and practice are determined, and strategies for improving the management of human diversity in nursing and health care are critically analyzed.
