Cultural Identity TD

| February 24, 2015
THIS IS A THREADED DISCUSSION WHERE I ANSWER THE QUESTION ABOUT THE VIDEO IN DETAIL AND THEN I RESPOND TO A STUDENT…. Before delving into your response to the TD question, I would like us to continue to get to know each other through an icebreaker. You will be seeing these icebreakers at the beginning of each module’s TD. The icebreaker for this TD is as follows: I want you to fill-in-the-blank to the following statement. People would be surprised to know that ____________ (share something interesting/unique about yourself that people would be surprised to know). After answering the icebreaker question, please answer the following question in your TD response: To what extent do you think cultural beliefs, values, and traditions may impact health education efforts? To what extent do you think cultural beliefs, values, and traditions may enhance health education efforts? Please answer both questions in your response and draw on specific examples from the Worlds Apart video clips that you watched in this module, which is the very first link. THE STUDENT THAT I AM RESPONDING TO IS GLORY GORHAM: People would be surprised to know that I came up in a physically and emotionally abused family. I feel the cultural values, beliefs, and traditions greatly impact health education in both a positive and a negative way. In a positive way the medical staff will have to learn and be educated on cross cultural perspectives of their diversed patients to offer the beet medicine practice or to give the patients a more understanding (educational prospective) on way it may work or not work. On the other side it could be a negative response for health education. What if you educated a patient on a procedure needed like ASAP and during the procedure something goes wrong, let’s say the patient went in to respiratory arrest and now the patient is regretting the procedure due religious reasons!!! Like in Justice. Ase the mother really wasn’t concern about the scar but her mother was due to religious healing belief of scars and healing.
