NURS 3315 Holistic Health Assessment
Module 5 Discussion Board Instructions
Week 5
Culture and Healthcare
Learning about culture is interesting and fun…but how does that relate to assessment? This is a HOLISTIC health assessment class, and we want you to be able to consider the whole patient, including cultural aspects. How will knowing about culture be important to the nurse? This week, on the discussion board, locate a professional article from the UTA library website or from Google Scholar, from the last 5 years, that addresses cultural beliefs and health care in some way. Summarize/paraphrase the article, cite it according to APA standards, and then put the reference at the bottom of the page. This should be done in no more than 2 – 3 paragraphs. COPY and PASTE your work into an entry on the discussion board—opening attachment after attachment quickly becomes tedious. Entitle the discussion entry with your name and the subject, for example: “Doe, Jane: Preterm birth and culture”.
You will receive points as per the rubric and instruction template this week by posting your summary, and by replying to 2 other students with a substantive comment.
