Purpose: This is the final part of a three-part series exploring cultures, ethnicities, age-appropriate care, and historical issues that affect the present health care climate. ALL115a covers cultural competency in health care, ALL115b highlights age-specific considerations in health care, and ALL115c addresses past and current issues of the health care industry, such as racism and discrimination, and how to respond as an individual and facility.

In this course, learners will need to look not only at the systemic issues of racism in the industry, but also their own biases, prejudices, and influence on residents’ care. Becoming knowledgeable and more comfortable with often uncomfortable truths, acknowledging differences, and understanding the issues that both health care workers and residents face are steps in breaking down historical barriers and broadening one’s perspectives.
