Nurses communicate with people of all ages from many diverse cultures. With the older population increasing and many ethnic groups visiting and/or moving into our country, it is imperative that we can communicate effectively with all clients.
Write a client scenario.
- Utilize a client that is from another country for which you are interested in meeting the challenges of communicating. You will want to utilize your Purnell Cultural reference book.
- As well as being from another country, maybe speaking another language, and having different cultural beliefs and attitudes, your client scenario should include physiologic and psychological changes (these are changes, not diagnosis as described in the third bullet point Ã¢â‚¬â€œ think about the Cognitive Integrity and Sensory Perception discussion in Module 2).
- Describe the location where you are meeting your client (clinic, doctor’s office, hospital, nursing home, or rehab center).
- List at least one physiologic problem (medical diagnosis) for your client (e.g. hypertension, obesity, diabetes, arthritis).
- Describe what some communication strategies would be and what challenges in relation to this client scenario.
- What interventions would the practical nurse anticipate on the client care plan?
