Cultural Influences Understanding cultural differences in patients can assist therapists to function as more effective educators.
Cultural Influences--Patient culture is influenced and shaped by society, community, family, personal values, and attitudes.
Cultural Influences--Language barriers, nonverbal communication, and limited personal experience can serve as obstacles when educating patients with significant cultural differences.
Cultural Influences--Therapists should embrace cultural diversity and avoid efforts to make patients conform to any particular norm or standard.
Cultural Influences--Therapists must be cautious when interpreting specific language or behavior and avoid labeling patients as unmotivated or disinterested.
Cultural Influences--Therapists should use available resources such as experienced staff members, interpreters or consultants as necessary to achieve desired outcomes.
Unidisciplinary: A single discipline provides patient care services.
Multidisciplinary: . Several different disciplines are involved in providing patient care, however, the disciplines tend to function independently and communication occurs primarily through the medical record
Interdisciplinary: Several different disciplines are involved in providing patient care. The disciplines function independently, however, routinely report to each other and may coordinate patient care.
Transdisciplinary: Numerous disciplines function as a collective unit to provide patient care services. Team goals are established rather than individual discipline goals and as a result, discipline specific boundaries tend to erode.
