cultural and other social economic diversities

cultural and other social economic diversities

A culturally competent healthcare program acknowledges the importance of culture, recognizes the potential impact of cultural differences, adapts to cultural knowledge and beliefs, and designs services to meet culturally unique needs. To design and plan programs that address cultural diversity, a program planner must be aware of cultural competency, health literacy, and ethical and social justice principles.

The team you’re working with to plan and eventually implement your chosen health or healthcare program (the same program you will present in your course project in Module Nine) is looking for additional details about how ethical and social justice principles will be integrated into the program. They also want to know more about how cultural competence and health literacy will be promoted. To provide them this information, you have been asked to put together a brief presentation to share with the team at your next meeting.

This activity will help you determine the importance of cultural competence and health literacy in program planning. Also, it will help you apply social justice and ethical principles to your program. You will use findings from this assignment to explain the socioeconomic factors of program planning in your course project presentation.

Prompt

Create a PowerPoint presentation with embedded speaker notes to describe how you will identify and address cultural and other socioeconomic diversities for your target population. Include your speaker notes as a Word document, either downloaded from your presentation or created separately, with slide numbers accompanying each slide note.

Specifically, you must address the following rubric criteria:

  1. Health Literacy:
  2.  Describe which elements of your program ensure health literacy among the targeted population. Consider the following questions to guide your response:
    • How would lack of health literacy impact the patients and the program’s activities?
    • How would health literacy among the targeted population improve the program’s ability to achieve its outcomes?
  3. Cultural Competence:
  4. Describe how you would make your program sensitive to various cultural practices and beliefs. Consider the following questions to guide your response:
  5. Social Justice Principles:
  6.  Describe how you would apply social justice principles to your program planning and how their inclusion would help improve the program’s ability to achieve its outcomes. Consider the following questions to guide your response:
    • Why is social justice important in the planning and implementation of healthcare programs?
    • Which two social justice principles does your program consider, and why does it consider them?
  7. Key Ethical Principles:
  8. Describe how your program satisfies key ethical principles and how including these principles would help your target population. Consider the following questions to guide your response:
    • How does your program satisfy the principles of beneficence, non maleficence, autonomy, and justice?
    • What are two potential challenges you might face in applying ethical principles to your program’s plan and design?

Note that all the claims in your deliverable should be evidence based. Your citations should be from your independent search for evidence (not from the scenario, textbook, or module resources) of credible sources and be current within the last five years. You are required to cite a minimum of two sources, at least one of which should be separate from your own research. Refer to the Shapiro Library Guide: Nursing—Graduate located in the Start Here section of the course for additional support. If you need writing support, access the Online Writing Center through the Academic Support module of your course.

Guidelines for Submission

Your submission should include a 4- to 6-slide PowerPoint presentation with embedded speaker notes and a Word document with your speaker notes. Use a clear, professional font and appropriate PowerPoint presentation slide design. For your speaker notes, you should use 12-point Times New Roman font, double spacing, and one-inch margins. Sources should be cited according to APA style.

Life Span Interview

Life Span Interview

Assignment:

Ray’s case has provided you with direct observation of a client’s history and life experiences. In the absence of this direct observation, social workers turn to assessment and interview techniques to gather essential facts about a client’s life span. Interviewing is an important social work skill—and one that requires more than simply reading a set of prescribed questions. A social worker must also demonstrate professional communication, both verbally and nonverbally, ask appropriate follow-up questions, and take notes at the same time.

For this Assignment, you practice interviewing an older adult about life events, experiences, and feelings that have shaped them. You then transform your interview notes into a narrative—that is, a life story—of the individual ­you interviewed. You interweave within this narrative an analysis of the life story by integrating person and the environment concepts and theories drawn from HBSE I and II.

To Prepare:

  • If you have not already done so, interview an older adult (age 65 or older) about their life story, using the Life Span Interview document in the Learning Resources. Take notes as you conduct the interview.
  • Review your notes and begin to interpret the older adult’s life story through the lens of human behavior and the social environment.

Submit

a 3- to 5-page paper in which you provide a narrative analysis of the Life Span Interview you completed. The paper should:

  • Provide a chronological history of the individual’s major life experiences.
    • Identify specific biological, psychological, and sociological influences that shaped the individual’s experience.
  • Analyze the individual’s experiences by applying theory and concepts learned throughout both HBSE courses.
    • Be sure to include the ways in which power, privilege, and oppression shaped their experience (e.g., race and ethnicity, gender, religion, ability, sexual orientation, etc.).
  • Provide your reflection of the experience, both in interviewing the individual and analyzing their narrative.
  • Explain what you learned and how you will apply this learning to future social work practice.

Use the Learning Resources to support your narrative analysis. Make sure to provide APA citations and a reference list
