Healthcare and nursing are being required to adapt to a rapidly changing world, particularly in the wake of COVID-19. The urgent need to prioritize diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging throughout health care services and whole-person care has never been more important. Today we are more aware than ever before of the structural divides that disproportionately impact marginalized groups. Nurses - as the most trusted profession and the largest component of the healthcare workforce - play critical roles in dismantling structures that propagate inequity, focus on the social determinants of health throughout comprehensive care, and develop partnerships with key stakeholders to advocate for sustainable practice and policy changes.
This will be a rebroadcast of Dr. Billy Rosa's talk delivered during the recent International Integrative Nursing Symposium. A lively discussion about health equity in nursing with time for questions with Dr. Nasra Giama, Clinical Associate Professor and Assistant Director of Inclusivity, Diversity, & Equity Committee at the UMN School of Nursing, and Dr. Megan Voss, Director of Education at the Bakken Center for Spirituality & Healing, will follow.
1. Discuss diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging in relation to various practice settings.
2. Identify how nurses can tackle the social determinants of health across educational, research, policy, and clinical practice domains.
3. Discuss factors that exacerbate and alleviate moral distress among the nursing workforce.
Please note that this webinar is only open to nurses and health professionals.
