On October 16th the Institute for Research into Superdiversity (IRiS) and the School of Nursing will host a joint workshop to explore approaches to building and maintaining a superdiverse nursing workforce and how this can be harnessed to raise awareness of cultural and other barriers in the healthcare context.
With an increasingly diverse population, having a nursing workforce which reflects this and is working towards an improved patient experience and increased standards of care is vital to better healthcare. A number of key issues will be addressed during this workshop in relation to this theme, including:
- Health needs and resources
- Understanding and increasing equality and representation in the nursing workforce
- Concepts of ‘Cultural Competence’ and its application in nursing training and education
- How do we communicate effectively in superdiverse nursing contexts?
- How do we approach ‘global nursing’: building and maintaining a superdiverse nursing workforce in geopolitically unstable healthcare contexts?
- Understanding superdiversity and its role in risk assessment, safety and the prevention of abuse
- The implications of Brexit and the political climate on the nursing workforce and patient population
