GOAL:  Investigate Patterns of Diversity

  1. What is the appropriate amount of patient-nurse & nurse-family interaction?
  2. Touching – is it welcome, expected, forbidden, accepted?  What are the nuances?
  3. Gestures – What signals attention?  How much eye contact is okay?  Fingers or thumbs?
  4. Space – come close or stay away? 
  5. Humor & Joking – lots or little?  G-rated or saucy?  Always serious?
  6. Topics – medical only?  Who generates alternatives?  How much “other” stuff?
  7. Praise and criticism – is public praise okay or ideal?  Is criticism from subordinates okay?
  8. Verbal interaction patterns – can you interrupt?  Do you wait for invitations to talk?

IDEAS FOR OBJECTIVES:

 

Outline Patterns for these elements of Diversity for YOUR groups (race, ethnicity, subculture, family, etc.), then outline them for other groups -constantly adding to the list of “other” groups - by interviewing members of those other groups whenever possible.
