Main Post

Post an explanation of the specific socioeconomic, spiritual, lifestyle, and other cultural factors associated with the patient you were assigned

The fact that there are numerous Asian subgroups, each with distinct values, cultural beliefs, health experiences, and perceived health needs, must be acknowledged. The 86-year-old Asian patient in question is physically and financially reliant on his daughter. He suffers from chronic prostatitis, GERD, vitamin B12 deficiency, and hypertension. He believes his daughter has to put up with him. He needs a thorough history and physical because he visits the office for an annual exam. First, the practitioner must comprehend cultural competence, which entails being sensitive to the needs of people with various ethnic backgrounds, religious beliefs, sexual orientations, and cultural norms (Ball, Dains, Flynn, Solomon & Stewart, 2019).

The patient’s social and ethnic background, income, standing in the family, level of happiness in life, pastimes, stressors, and support systems all contribute to his socioeconomic status. Other things to think about include cultural customs like religion, specialty foods, or diet, as well as whether the patient gets enough exercise each day. What does he think of his health? Has the patient obtained medical coverage? Does the patient have a strong command of English and the ability to read and comprehend health information pertaining to his condition and proposed course of treatment? All of these elements influence the patient’s decision-making regarding his or her health and receiving medical care (Lee, Rhee, Kim & Ahluwalia, 2015).

Explain the issues that you would need to be sensitive to when interacting with the patient and why?

I would be sensitive about his ethnicity because as I mentioned previously there are many subgroups in an Asian population and it is essential to know how the patient identifies himself, or whether it would be appropriate to make eye contact because in other Asian populations eye contact would be considered a sign of disrespect as well as not addressing the elderly by last name. When I am interacting with the patient, I need to know about his culture and traditions to provide culturally competent patient care (Brolley, Tu & Wong, 2007).

Provide at least five targeted questions you would ask the patient to build his health history health risks.

  1. What language do you speak at home?
  2. How well do you understand English, both spoken and written?
  3. What does health and illness mean to you?
  4. Are there special signs that demonstrates respect or disrespect
  5. Who makes decision in the family?
  6. Tell me about your families medical History
  7. During the past month have you felt down, depressed, hopeless or has had no interest or pleasure in doing things? (Ball, Dains, Flynn, Solomon & Stewart, 2019). NURS 6512 UMES Wk 2 Alethea Butler the Asian Sub Groups Discussion
