During a home visit for a 72-year-old Asian woman, the home health nurse notices that her prescription medications for hypertension and diabetes are untouched. Her daughter explains that she cannot get her mother to take the “Western pills” and that her mother has been using a variety of herbal remedies.
You are asked by your supervisor to provide a summary report that address the following:
- How do you provide care for this patient that is culturally competent?
- How does her culture play a role into her nursing care?
- What techniques can you utilize to enhance the data collection process?
- How will you incorporate patient centered care values while trying to complete a head to toe assessment?
Your report should be coherent and precise, and should address all the required components in a research-based manner using text support and outside research to create a set of responses to the supervisor prompts above.
The essay should be 1000-1250 words and should include at least three (3) citations. The sections should be clearly marked with headings so that your instructor knows which points you are addressing. Follow the guidelines for APA writing style. The title page and references page do not count towards the minimum word amount for this assignment.
