Conceptualizing Leininger’s Theory and Cultural Congruence for Social Justice and Health Equity

Rick Zoucha, PhD, PMHCNS-BC, CTN-A, FAAN, FTNSS and Dula F. Pacquiao, EdD, RN, CTN-A, FTNSS

Contemporary transcultural nursing imperatives include the establishment and articulation of critical significance in promoting social justice and health equity. The central tenets of transcultural nursing are grounded in advocacy and respect for diverse individuals, families and communities. Greater emphasis however, needs to be placed on promoting an orientation to social justice and commitment to action in order to secure equity of health outcomes for disadvantaged and vulnerable populations. Transcultural nursing knowledge and skills should continue to evolve and retool to address current issues in health care. Historically, the nursing discipline has focused on the significance of culture on care.  It is important in contemporary times to move beyond recognition of the significance and relation of care and culture to that of social justice and health equity imperatives.

This presentation examines the utility of Leininger’s culture care theory and culturally congruent care in the context of social determinants of health and vulnerability in local and global populations. The benefit of expanding the theoretical and conceptual view of Leininger’s culture care theory, social justice and health equity can promote culturally congruent care in diverse and vulnerable populations.  Education, research and practice strategies demonstrate the application of the core concepts of transcultural nursing theory in transforming nursing and health care to improve the health and well-being of diverse populations globally.
