They will create innovative assessment methodology and tools aiming to measure the nurses’ awareness of the importance of cultural and religious values and their understanding of health inequalities as well as their impact on culturally diverse population groups.
Through the exchange of experiences, partners will develop case studies detailing various scenarios mapped in a Good practice manual, which can be used by teachers to promote culturally competent and compassionate care.
