Native American Patient Care
Culturally appropriate communication with traditional Native American patients and their families is essential to providing excellent care and, in some cases, requires approaches that are different from standard training. This resource was created by collaboration between the University of New Mexico School of Medicine, University of New Mexico Hospital, and the Gallup Indian Medical Center. The current content focuses on communication with Navajo (Diné) patients and families, particularly during care for COVID-19 patients at health care facilities away from homeland.
