Course Description

This course involves a critical examination of the relationship between culture and health, which are explored as dynamic, socially constructed processes linked to historic econo-socio-political contexts. The impact of global migration, colonialism and racialization on Indigenous and immigrant health will also be addressed. Using a postcolonial theoretical framework, and cultural safety as a lens for critical reflection, participants actively engage with approaches to understanding how cultural diversity influences nurse-client relationships, access to health care, and health care systems around the world.

Registration in this course is restricted to students admitted to the Post-Degree Certificate in Nursing Leadership and Management or the Post-Degree Diploma in Nursing Practice in Canada.

Corequisite(s): NURS 5110, 5115, 5130, and 5135.
