Click on Getting Started.
Take the Quality and Culture Quiz. Note that this quiz is not a “test.” Your score is not as important as what you learn from the results of the quiz. It takes about 10 minutes to complete and is designed to assist you in learning about how culture influences health care.
After completing the quiz and reviewing your results, write a one-page paper that reflects upon the following:
- What did you learn about how culture influences health care? Mention specific questions you answered correctly and those you answered incorrectly.
- What did you learn about yourself after taking the quiz? Mention your own strengths and weaknesses in terms of specific beliefs, concepts, and skills related to your ability to effectively work with and interact with diverse cultures in the health care setting.
For Part II, read the following articles, which can be accessed in the Trident library:
Purcell, N., & Cutchen, L. (2013). Diabetes self-management education for African Americans: Using the PEN-3 model to assess needs. American Journal of Health Education, 44(4), 203-212.
Lindberg, N. M., Stevens, V. J., & Halperin, R. O. (2013). Weight-Loss Interventions for Hispanic Populations: The Role of Culture. Journal of Obesity, 2013, 542736.
Choose ONE of the articles topics to focus on for the rest of the SLP. You will use the information in the selected publication as you go through the phases of applying the PEN-3 model to develop a hypothetical health education program.
Write a two-page paper that includes the following:
- Provide a brief overview of the health issue among your selected group, statistics about the scope of the problem, and its implications for health.
- Describe the Cultural Identity of the group you chose. Specifically address how each of the PEN-3 models three factors within Cultural Identity applies to your group and provide examples.
Use subheadings to clearly show that you have addressed each of the three factors. Support your discussion with references from scholarly and professional references (not just your opinion).
