3021-17: See Me, Hear Me:  Diagnosing and Treating Anxiety in Racial & Ethnic Minorities with a Culture of Care

Historically racial/ethnic minorities are reported to experience lower rates of anxiety than their white counterparts. The literature suggest this may result from a paucity of cultural awareness of anxiety symptoms. In this presentation the Culture of Caring model highlights the value of cultural awareness in mental health nursing.
