This week, you will learn how to plan care for patients while considering their diverse cultural backgrounds. This is an APA paper, which requires a title page, double spacing, and set up as per the example papers in your APA book. Please select a culture different from the one you chose to research in week 2. PLEASE USE ASIANS!!
Then, address the following:
- Describe the key components of conducting a comprehensive cultural assessment (rationales, interventions and evaluations may be found on the internet).
- Choose two of the components, reflect on your own culture and how it impacts your own attitude toward those aspects of providing culturally diverse care.
- Imagine that you are working in a physician’s office. A patient of a background different from your own comes in to be seen for a newly diagnosed problem. Create two nursing diagnoses that reflect cultural diversity (look at Appendix A for guidance ie., “Barrier to communication”); then give rationale for each diagnosis and describe how you would intervene and evaluate for success of your plan of care.
