A nurse manager in a community clinic is concerned because the local refugee population does not seek health care routinely.What action by the nurse would be most helpful?
Free
Multiple Choice
Answer:

Answer:

A
Ethnocentrism is the view that the beliefs,values,and behaviors of one culture are superior to those of other cultures.Ethnocentrism is dangerous in health care because it is blind to the possibilities of other solutions and viewpoints and alienates people in need of health care.The nurse manager would be wise to assess the clinic's staff and procedures for ethnocentrism.Meeting with a community leader is always a good idea to learn the viewpoints of the community,but unless ethnocentric behaviors change,it is unlikely that the refugee community will increase its use of the clinic.Flyers and incentives may also be helpful in some cases,but not as helpful as reducing the barriers imposed by ethnocentrism.

Free
Multiple Choice
Answer:

Answer:

C
The culturally sensitive nurse is able to understand and respond to the needs of individuals and families from different cultures.This nurse plans interventions with a solid knowledge of the values and practices of the members of the culture.Being open,listening to the family,and involving them in care demonstrates respect,unifies the nurse-patient relationship,and will motivate the patient (and family)to make positive health changes.Attending workshops is a good way to learn about diverse cultures and attending community events with diverse populations can increase cultural knowledge,but these actions are too limited in scope to demonstrate cultural competence.Nurses should use professional interpreters when needed.

Answer:

Complementary therapy is nontraditional treatment that is used in addition to traditional medical care.Alternative therapies are used in place of traditional therapies.Adding massage to the medical regimen is an example of using complementary therapy.Substituting herbs for prescription medication is an example of alternative therapy.Because the patient is asking about complementary therapy,there is no need to warn him or her of the effects of stopping treatment.There are always complementary therapies that can be added to a medical regimen.
