Cross-cultural communication in nursing

The Nursing and Midwifery Council  'Code'  mandates that Nurses and Midwives:

7.2 take reasonable steps to meet people’s language and communication needs, providing, wherever possible, assistance to those who need help to communicate their own or other people’s needs

7.3 use a range of verbal and non-verbal communication methods, and consider cultural sensitivities, to better understand and respond to people’s personal and health needs

Reference:  Nursing and Midwifery Council [NMC]. (2015). The Code. Professional standards of practice and behaviour for nurses and midwives. NMC: London

It is proposed that nurses in the UK are unable to communicate effectively with people from other cultures
