This course explores the essential elements of professional communication from a socio-cultural perspective.

Strategies and techniques, taking into consideration the socio-cultural context and unique communication needs across the lifespan, are applied. The concepts of cultural sensitivity, cultural safety, gender and diversity concerning the nurse’s role in client centered/family care are discussed. In relation to these concepts, the course includes an overview of the history and culture of Canadian Indigenous people and the residual effects of colonialism on indigenous populations.
