SNR Nurse, Urgent Community Response Services, High Wealden, Lewes and Havens

This opportunity will further my knowledge in culturally competent care, ensure care is sensitive to cultural identity and heritage, will mean my own professional approach is more responsive to the beliefs and cultural needs of patients cared for and support culturally sensitive dialogues within the work environment to be open, inclusive, and empowering. I would like to be encouraging the team to express views and concerns, to listen and act upon these to shape the service and culture.’

‘I believe the scholarship will support further exploration of conscious and unconscious personal and cultural bias, using this awareness will enable the development of tailored person care. It will ultimately contribute to a positive healthcare experience, and facilitate further exploration of my own and organisational discriminatory attitudes in the workplace.’
