Introduction

Our nation has been a melting pot of cultures since its birth and this multiculturalism is increasing rapidly. This diversity is creating a significant challenge for interactions at all levels of society, particularly in healthcare. In order to meet this challenge,  advanced practice nurses must first understand the concept of culture, as well as health and illness.

Culture is defined by Dayer-Berenson, as “the shared values, traditions, norms, customs, arts, history, folklore, and institutions of a group of people who are unified by race, ethnicity, language, nationality, sexual orientation, and/or religion.”(2014). In order to help our patients connect with their healthcare providers, it is vital as advanced practice nurses to provide culturally sensitive and competent care. This will help us identify healthcare disparities and their impact on current health care in the United States.

Learning objectives for the module:

At the end of this module, the student will be able to:

  1. Define health and illness
  2. Define diversity
  3. Identify ways to provide culturally competent care
  4. Describe the impact of diversity on healthcare disparities

Topic 1: Health and Illness

The concepts of health and illness are not easily defined and are difficult to understand. The World Health Organization (WHO) defines health as “a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease.”  Other definitions include the state of being free from illness or injury or a general condition of the body or mind in equilibrium. The many definitions of health make it difficult to grasp and understand its meaning. The definitions of illness are just as elusive. Is it the absence or opposite of health or is it better defined as a disease or conditio

Health, Illness And Culture.

n?  No matter the definition we need to understand that the experience of being ill is also defined by the patient.   What health may mean to a 21-year-old athlete versus a 60-year-old diabetic will vary greatly. Therefore we find individuals defining health and illness according to their own definitions. We also must realize that culture greatly affects one’s definition of health and illness, therefore as advanced practice nurses in order to provide competent care we must understand health and illness from our client’s perspective.

Topic 2: Cultural Diversity

The United States is a multicultural nation made up of cultures from around the world. According to the US Census Bureau, Asian and mixed-race people are the two fastest-growing populations in the US. Although non-Hispanic whites remain the largest group of Americans at 198 million, they are the only group with a higher death rate than the birth rate. Hispanics follow the non-Hispanic whites at 57.5 million and blacks or African Americans at 46.8 million. With the increase in these diverse populations come issues that tremendously affect their health care. Language barriers and low incomes lead to lower access and availability of health care and therefore less favorable outcomes according to the Institute of Medicine (IOM) report (2003). This results in daily challenges for the nurse to identify the diverse needs of the patients and address them in order to provide quality health care. In order to combat these culturally driven healthcare disparities, the advanced practice nurse must be prepared to meet the unique healthcare needs of all culturally diverse patients in their care.

Assignment: The Impact of Standardized Nursing Terminology

Among the Resources in this module is the Rutherford (2008) article Standardized Nursing Language: What Does It Mean for Nursing Practice? In this article, the author recounts a visit to a local hospital to view the recent implementation of a new coding system.
During the visit, one of the nurses commented to her, “We document our care using standardized nursing languages but we don’t fully understand why we do” (Rutherford, 2008, para. 1).
How would you respond to a comment such as this one?
To Prepare:
· Review the concepts of informatics as presented in the Resources, particularly Rutherford, M. (2008) Standardized Nursing Language: What Does It Mean for Nursing Practice?
· Reflect on the role of a nurse leader as a knowledge worker.
· Consider how knowledge may be informed by data that is collected/accessed.
The Assignment:
In a 2- to 3-page paper, address the following:
· Explain how you would inform this nurse (and others) of the importance of standardized nursing terminologies.
· Describe the benefits and challenges of implementing standardized nursing terminologies in nursing practice. Be specific and provide examples.
· Be sure to support your paper with peer-reviewed research on standardized nursing terminologies that you consulted from the Walden Library.

Respond
Project management skills are highly fundamental in the nursing and healthcare industry overall as they help in controlling costs, managing risk, and improving project outcomes. They equally provide pragmatic and practical approaches for the implementation of projects in the healthcare setting.  As a project manager, numerous factors must be taken into consideration in understanding a budget to ensure that a project is completed on time and within budget. Today, I know much about project development than I did before. Through the completion of the project templates, I was able to apply the concepts of leadership skills in project management for the development, implementation, and evaluation of successful project plans.  Project Management task in Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) application creates achievement of predefined performance measures, which could help decide the project performance, irrespective of the object. I learned that WBS is the start of the planning process and the basis for the project forecasting. The use of WBS provides a strong foundation for prediction management to allow project activities. Stages/phases of work are easily manageable utilizing a WBS.  A WBS offers an efficient means of accurately estimating costs and highlighting deliverables (significant goals to be achieved).   During the initial project budget, I better understand the value of searching for differences between the cost baseline and the actual amount to spend on a project.  Risks could threaten to derail a project.  Budgetary control is concerning when the calculation of the project budget is overestimated and overdraft during the implementation stage.   The risks must be known and must be managed and mitigated effectively.
