Agency for Healthcare Research & Quality
2013 National Healthcare Disparities
Report
– “Gap between best possible care and what
is routinely delivered remains substantial
across the Nation”
– “Some individuals routinely receive poorer
quality of care when they can get it”
12
Healthcare Disparities
• “Blacks and Hispanics
received worse care
than Whites for about
40% of quality
measures”
• “Poor people received
worse care than highincome people for
about 60% of quality
measures
13

The Burden of Healthcare Disparities
• Undermine the health of society
• Detrimental effect on life expectancy
• Economic burden (2003-2006 > one trillion dollars)
15
Workforce Diversity
2004 Missing Persons:
Minorities in the Health Professions
The lack of diversity significantly challenges
efforts that seek to improve the quality of our
nation’s health care, the delivery of
culturally relevant care, and goals of
reducing health disparities
2004 IOM In the Nation’s Compelling Interest
Greater diversity among health
professionals is needed
16
Diversity
• A diverse workforce could help remedy the
poor quality of healthcare minorities
receive
• A more diverse nursing workforce will lead
to better communication, interaction and
treatment for patients of all backgrounds
(IOM, 2004)
• “The lack of minority health
professionals is compounding the
nation’s persistent racial and ethnic
health disparities” (Sullivan Commission, 2004)
17
Supporting Diversity
• NLN: “The case for increasing diversity in the nurse
educator workforce in schools of nursing has never been
stronger…The higher education community must commit
to diverse environments” (2009)
• HRSA: “Increase diversity and cultural competence of
the nursing workforce” (HHS, 2011)
• IOM: “Greater emphasis must be placed on increasing
the diversity of the workforce… ensuring that nurses are
able to provide culturally relevant care.” (2011)
• RWJF: “…the program’s goals include increasing the
diversity of the nursing workforce…” (2012)
• AACN: “…recruitment of underrepresented groups into
nursing is a priority for the nursing profession in the U.S”
(2013)

THE POWER OF DIVERSITY
Executive Order 13583
Our Nation derives strength from the diversity of its
population and from its commitment to equal
opportunity for all. We are at our best when we draw
on the talents of all parts of our society, and our
greatest accomplishments are achieved when diverse
perspectives are brought to bear to overcome our
greatest challenges.
Government Wide Diversity & Inclusion Strategic Plan President Obama, 2011
19
Diversity Defined
• “Recognizing individual differences in the context of
ethnicity and gender. This includes the development of a
culture where individuals and institutions move beyond
simple tolerance, where they embrace and celebrate the
richness of debate and dialogue based on difference…
• Seed the ground to cultivate that vibrant culture. It
represents an embarkation point for our journey to the
richly diverse workforce of faculty, researchers, and
pedagogical scholars that can mentor and serve as role
models for future nurses and nurse educators from many
backgrounds”.
NLN’s A Commitment to Diversity, 2009
20
Beyond Diversity
• Diversity is key to patient centered care and an
integral component of decreasing healthcare
disparities.
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services report,
A Nation Free of Heath Disparities (2011)
• Diversity alone has NOT been enough
21
Creating Inclusive Environments
• Create action plans that support diversity, equity
(equal) and inclusivity
• Seek to recognize and control biases
• Collaborate with other coalitions to build inclusive
environments
• Recognize that power affects how we interact with
others
• Respect and appreciate difference
• Seek opportunities to work with individuals who are
different from you
• Understand that your reality is a construct that is
influenced by your past experiences and that your
reality shapes the lens through which you view things
22
Beyond Race, Power & Privilege
• Avoiding race related discussions does not dissolve
the issues that difference brings
• Not seeing one’s race or ethnicity dismisses one’s
cultural differences
• Acknowledging our differences and our
contributions is affirming
23
Strength Based Approach
• Deficiency Orientation
– Energy focused on remediation, this supports low
expectations & a mindset that individuals are deficient
– Less time focused on evaluating and improving the system
• Difference Orientation
– Identify an individual’s strengths and build on it
24
Create a Culture of Inclusivity
Diversity is like inviting someone to the dance
Inclusivity is like offering them something to eat,
giving them a compliment and asking them to
dance with you
25
What Stuck?
• An ‘Aha’ moment
• A pleasant surprise
• Something that you had to struggle with to
understand
• Something that you don’t agree with
• Something that you agree with strongly
• Something you thought was particularly interesting
• Something you didn’t expect
• An insight or solution
• Something you want to know more about or a
question that you have
