In the second step we reached 60 nurses who work in different clinics such as intensive care units, foreign patient clinics, and post natal clinics.
The third tool “Intercultural Communication”- the aim of this tool is to improve the cultural competence in the nursing practice. Cultural competence and respect for others becomes especially important in the nursing practice, because culture affects health care services that nurses provide, in school, most of nurses were taught to respect the rights and dignity of all patients. As the world becomes smaller and individuals and societies become more mobile, nurses are increasingly able to interact with individuals from other cultures. It was piloted in April 2015 with the head nurses of each clinic, training nurses and selected nurses who work with patients from different countries in the department of foreign patient clinic (health tourism). Totally we implemented number of 75 nurses.
