Slide content:Challenges to Cultural Competence for Informatics Students? Resistance I didnt come to informatics school to learn this we have more important things to worry about Ethnocentrism or denial of own culture/bias Stereotyping and oversimplifying Culture not monolithic but is relative, plural, partial Othering Group defined as different from norm group labeled, marginalized, excluded (users) 11
Slide notes:In health informatics [in- fer -mat- iks ] we can also encounter the same forms of resistance: The idea that we have more important things to worry about in our informatics [in- fer -mat- iks ] training, the ethnocentrism or cultural bias that grounds us in our own culture, the tendency to stereotype and oversimplify members of other cultures such as health professionals, and the tendency toward othering by defining people who are different (for example, nurses, doctors, therapists, etcetera) and labeling, marginalizing, or excluding them. Perhaps youve seen examples of this in the organizations in which youve worked. 11
