The goal of this project is to create a culture change in the delivery of cross-cultural care within MGHfC. We will accomplish this by providing the opportunity for residents, attending physicians, and nurses to participate in a longitudinal curriculum. This curriculum will enable all providers to change their approach to cross-cultural care through reflection on their current practice and active discussion and training of new language and attitudes. To accomplish this overarching goal, we have the following specific aims: 1) Adapt, implement, and evaluate a pediatric resident cross-cultural curriculum 2) Assess efficacy of the curriculum, by developing and utilizing simulation cases to assess pediatric residents on the skills taught during the intervention 3) Modify the curriculum based on the evaluation and implement with nurses and faculty Student role(s) can be multiple; they can learn how to teach the curriculum, develop cases especially for the simulation component, learn about simulation, help write manuscripts and be co-authors

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
