Heritage Assessment
Culture and diversity is something we cannot avoid in the busy life of society and therefore it has become very important and imminent that we grasp what we can and respect as much as we can back to the community and the patients we see. America has become a melting pot and it has become highly unlikely not to meet anyone with a different culture, religion or ethnicity. In this paper we will discuss the aspects of health maintenance, protection and restoration after assessing three different people from three very different backgrounds.

The first family interviewed and assessed was Tina Ouraie from Iran. Tina was 18 when she moved to America with her parents and still speaks Farsi, which is her mother tongue. Tina has continued to celebrate and practice her native festivities along with cooking Persian food. Tina states she has a deep love for her country and the very rich culture, which is over 3000 years old, “ I can not imagine being born in any other country”. Tina states that the health practices in Iran are not very much different than America; “we have big hospitals but also small clinics, it is easy to get an appointment and the doctors are very intelligent if not more so than America”. Second family was Adeel from India. India has been known to practice medicine for a very long time and mostly by herbs and spices until the western medicine took over. Adeel reports that he has been in America for 8 years and is now in medical school, which has helped him understand the western medicine in a different way he knew. “We have very modern hospitals, however we also have very poorly shaped ones as well, the contrast in health care system is very broad, depending on where in India you are”. Adeel states he has continued to practice his own belief in Hinduism, stating that “this is what I grew up to believe and maybe it is strange to…...

...I am diagnosed with asthma. I developed with these symptoms when I was five years old. I first reacted when I smelled a flower in my graduation I had a difficult time breathing and also associated with coughing and wheezing. I was immediately taken to the doctor and was given fast acting bronchio dilators and then I felt relieved. I was closely evaluated by the physician and Advair was prescribed it helped me with my exertions and I got relieved with frequent asthma attacks. Today I can do all normal activity without any difficulty in breathing and I still do maintain follow up checkups with my physician. Asthma is a disease affecting the airway that transports air to and from the lungs. People who are suffering this disease are usually long lasting or recurrent. The inward walls of asthmatic airways are swollen or inflamed. The inflammation can cause the airway to become narrower which will lead to less air passing through the airways. The inflammation and swelling can also increase your allergic reaction because of the airways being extremely sensitive to this irritation. The symptoms for asthma from narrowing are wheezing (hissing sounds while breathing), chest tightness, breathing problems and coughing. This is usually more common early in the morning and during the night. Asthma can’t be treated but there are medications that can be manageable for asthma. When symptoms are worse than ordinary it’s called an asthma attack or asthma episode. This type of asthma can cause......

...Career Assessment One of the most popular personality tests in the world is the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), a psychological-assessment system based on the work of psychologist Carl Jung. The MBTI asks a person to answer a series of ‘forced-choice’ questions, where one choice identifies you as belonging to one of four paired traits. The basic test takes twenty minutes, and at the end you are presented with a precise, multi-dimensional summary of your personality. The MBTI test classifies people into types based on four opposing dimensions, Extraversion-Introversion (E-I), Sensing-Intuition (S-N), Thinking-Feeling (T-F) and Judging-Perceiving (J-P). Based on the answers to the questions on the inventory, people are identified as having one of 16 personality types. The goal of the MBTI is to allow someone the ability to further explore and understand their own personalities including their likes, dislikes, strengths, weaknesses, possible career predilections, and compatibility with other people. Taking the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator can provide a lot of insight into your personality, which is probably why the instrument has become so enormously popular. Each opposing aspect of the MBTI test helps to explore personality a little more. The Extraversion-Introversion (E-I) helps show a preference for focusing attention on, and drawing energy from, the outside world of people and things rather than the inner world of ideas and impressions. Sensing-Intuition......

...Heritage Assessment Grand Canyon University Health care has never been so diverse, not only among patients but also health care providers themselves. In most big metropolitan areas of the US this will only grow and be ever changing. It is imperative that we continue to become culturally aware in our communities to continue to provide competent and safe care. Each individual’s heritage needs to be respected and for that to happen, nurses need to educate themselves with values and beliefs of other cultures and be considerate of a patients heritage. “Cultural heritage is an expression of the ways of living developed by a community and passed on from generation to generation, including customs, practices, places, objects, artistic expressions and values” (ICOMOS 2002). A person may represent their heritage through beliefs, ideas, and prayers and may be visible in their everyday attire or just thoughts and actions. By assessing a patient properly a nurse can identify a patients background and have an idea of how to respect their beliefs, health practices and this will help educate the patient when considering how they make health care decisions The health assessment tool has been created to help guide this process and help ensure a positive outcome. With this tool a health care professional can provide individualized care that is culturally appropriate. In an interview with 3 different families, Nicaraguan, Nigerian, Pilipino, the assessment tool has helped compare......

...Health Assessment Health assessment is an essential nursing function which provides foundation for quality nursing care and intervention. It helps to identify the strengths of the clients in promoting health. Health assessment also helps to identify client’s needs, clinical problems or nursing diagnoses and to evaluate responses of the person to health problems and intervention (Fuller & Schaller-Ayers, 2000). An accurate and thorough health assessment reflects the knowledge and skills of a professional nurse. Definition Health assessment is a systematic, deliberative and interactive process by which nurses use critical thinking to collect, validate, analyze and synthesize the collected information in order to make judgement about the health status and life processes of individuals, families and communities. Principles In planning and performing health assessment, the nurse needs to consider the following: 1. An accurate and timely health assessment provides foundation for nursing care and intervention. 2. A comprehensive assessment incorporates information about a client’s physiologic, psychosocial, spiritual health, cultural and environmental factors as well as client’s developmental status. 3. The health assessment process should include data collection, documentation and evaluation of the client’s health status and responses to health problems and intervention. 4. All documentation should be objective, accurate, clear, concise,......

...Health assessment provides a foundation for improving the health of a community. Factors were noted in an assessment of Sampson County that affect the health of the population. The resultant proposal will focus on the southernmost part of the county which is more rural and has fewer resources. Delineating strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats helped to prioritize needs so that possible solutions can be generated. An emerging issue was the continued prevalence of chronic diseases despite the existence of health resources. Unfortunately, preventable aspects of the diseases cannot be addressed if individuals are unable to access services. Some citizens may access services but be unable to follow up. Access and transportation continue to present a formidable challenge to health promotion and disease prevention. Also a need for education regarding health promotion, healthy lifestyle choices, exercise and health screening was noted. Limited health literacy and low educational levels present barriers to successfully providing interventions. A need for more funding to provide strategies that address health disparities was apparent. For example, funds are needed to expand Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention Programs and outreach for parent education. Other issues such as affordable housing and lack of adequate mental health service were noted. Substandard housing presents significant risks to adults and children. Strategies should be formulated which use......

...between summative and formative assessments Formative assessment gives feedback and information during the instructional process- during the learning that occurs. This type of assessment measures the learner's progress and also that of the instructor. The main focus of formative assessment is to identify areas that need help or improvement. These check the learning progress and the effectiveness of the teaching methods and activities. Types of formative assessments include observations, homework exercises, question and answer sessions, and student. Formative assessment occurs during a course or programme of study which the teacher implements. It is often informal. This shows effective learning and the need for modifications. Formative assessment is assessment for learning. Uses for formative assessment: •facilitates learning •determine whether learning has occurred •provide feedback on learners' progression, signs for improvement •diagnose needs/barriers of learning and changes needed to change the course/programme •current strategies and methods can be adapted and accommodating •monitors the learning process Summative assessment occurs after learning and provides information and feedback that summarises and concludes the teaching and learning process. Rubrics are designed with set standards and are communicated to learners before the task so they know what is expected of them. Grades are an example of the outcome of summative assessment to determine whether......

...Cultural Competency Assessment Cultural Competency Assessment Cultural competency is a combination of attitudes, behaviors, and policies that creates a system within an organization or among groups. It allows people to work together effectively in cross-cultural, diverse situations. Culture is the pattern of behaviors that includes a person’s actions, thoughts, communications, beliefs, values, language, and institutions of social, ethnic, racial, and religious groups. Competence determines whether a person can function effectively as an individual, group, or organization within the context of the cultural behaviors, beliefs, and needs of clients and the communities in which he or she resides (Sutton, 2000). America is considered the “the melting pot” because of the culturally diverse communities we live, work, and play in. Importance of Cultural Competence America is a combination of diverse race and cultures, such as White, Asian, Native American, African American, Hispanic, and many others. Although every culture has created a new way of life in the 21st Century, each group has preserved values and beliefs from his or her original culture. Human service professionals need to provide services with objective, nonjudgmental, knowledgeable, open-mindedness, and the williness to understand the needs of each client. For example, a human service professional not aware of the Native American Child Welfare Policies may remove a child from his or her tribal family, and place......

...Running head: Heritage Assessment Heritage Assessment Caridad Doucet Grand Canyon University: NRS-429V Family Centered Health Promotions Melva Bost RN, MS August 26, 2012 Heritage Assessment The United States has become a multicultural country. Everywhere you look, you see a plethora of cultures that range from Hispanic and African to Asian and American Indian. The varied traditions and beliefs of a multicultural country impact how nurses implement patient-centered care. The best way to provide optimal care in nursing is to become better informed in how different cultures view health maintenance, protection, and restoration. The Heritage Assessment is a wonderful tool to obtain information that can be used to evaluate the needs of the whole person. The Heritage Assessment is a list of twenty nine questions that identify a person’s county of origin, native language, religious beliefs, education, and birth place of parents and grandparents information. These questions reveal cultural information that can help the nurse assess the needs of the whole patient, not just the diagnosis, and to plan their care accordingly. The heritage assessment can also build communication by fostering interest and openings for other important health related questions. The information provided can break down stereotyping by informing the nurse of where individuals derive their feelings about illness, and heath care. (Smith) This nurse’s cultural heritage is......
