1) Cultural competence and diversity are often considered to have the same meaning in healthcare facilities. What is the difference between these two terms and their applicability in terms of healthcare professionals in various healthcare settings? 

Although cultural competence and diversity are often considered to have the same meaning in healthcare facilities they are different. Diversity is in fact a component of cultural competency. This includes ethnic and racial backgrounds, age, physical and cognitive abilities, family status, religion, sexual orientation, etc… cultural competency wouldnt exist without diversity . It is important for healthcare professionals to be culturally competent for the sake of the patient’s comfort in receiving services. Lack of cultural competence can lead to noncompliance, missed appointments, and patients seeking care from non-professionals. In the cultural compliance training video an older Hispanic women spoke on how her physician said they’d schedule her a new appointment and she basically said that she wouldn’t show up because it would be the same thing that happened to her at her current appointment; a miscommunication and nothing being resolved. Health professionals who are diverse tend to have a better work ethic and connection with their patients because they’re most likely to be understand certain cultural distinctions, treatment seeking behaviors, etc… (cultural  compentency for the health professional)

2) Explain the unique circumstances under which the ancestors of most Black/African American people arrived in the Americas. Why is it important for health service professionals to understand this history?

The first Africans in the New World arrived with Spanish and Portuguese explorers and settlers. By 1600 an estimated 275,000 Africans, both free and slave, were in Central and South America and the Caribbean area. Africans first arrived in the area that became the United States in 1619, when a handful of captives were sold by the captain of a Dutch man-of-war to settlers at Jamestown. Others were brought in increasing numbers to fill the desire for labor in a country where land was plentiful and labor scarce. By the end of the 17th century, approximately 1,300,000 Africans had landed in the New World. From 1701 to 1810 the number reached 6,000,000, with another 1,800,000 arriving after 1810. Some Africans were brought directly to the English colonies in North America. Others landed as slaves in the West Indies and were later resold and shipped to the mainland. (African  American History: Scholastic , n.d.) However many “black” colored individuals rather identify themselves with their family-related nationality rather than where they were born or raised. Some rather the term black when being identified and some rather be identified as African American. This is very complex. I know, myself, I do not like to identified as Black I prefer to identify myself and Haitian/Bahamian because I consider the Black culture as people who only speak English and are just Americans with darker colored skin, who eat American meals and have American traditions. I speak English and Creole, I eat Haitian meals and follow Haitian traditions. I was born in America but my parents and older sisters were born in Bahamas and had the Haitian culture bestowed in them so I identify as that. It is important for health service professionals to understand the history of how most Black/African Americans were brought to the Americas so they’d be able to establish a positive relationship with their patients. The best way to approach patients on the matter would be to just humbly ask the person how they identify themselves. (cultural compentency for the  health professional)

3) Is Hispanic a racial or ethnic category? Explain. How might this impact the status of the African/Black group, for example, in terms of whether it is the largest or second largest minority group?

Many people confuse racial and ethnic categories when it comes to the Hispanic group. But that is because many people do not know the difference between one’s race and one’s ethnicity. Unlike with ethnicity, one can only belong to one race. See, race is your biologically engineered features. It can include skin color, skin tone, eye and hair color, as well as a tendency toward developing certain diseases. It is not something that can be changed or disguised. People can however change or impersonate ethnicities through choice and principles. Ethnicity is about tradition, learned behavior and customs. It is about learning where you come from, and celebrating the traditions and ideas that are part of that region.(difference  between ethnicity and race, n.d.). Thus, Hispanic would fall more into the ethnic category because the Hispanic group has no permanent physical characteristics, language or cultural norms. So a person of Hispanic decent can be Mexican, Puerto Rican, Cuban, Central or South American, or other Spanish culture or origin, regardless of race. Since Hispanic is not a racial group but an ethnic group, the Hispanic group comprise the largest minority group and the African/Black group comes in second as the second largest minority group. (cultural competency for the  health professional)

4) List the racial categories based on the OMB classification in the United States. Explain the geographic origins of the people designated for each of the categories. Why is it important for health professionals to understand cultural differences among and between groups?

The racial categories based on the OMB classification in the United States are as follows:

· Native Americans or Alaskan Native: A person having origins in any of the original peoples of North America and who maintains cultural identification through tribal affiliations or community recognition.

· Asian/Pacific Islander: A person having origins in any of the original peoples of the Far East, Southeast Asia, the Indian subcontinent, or the Pacific Islands.

· African American/Black: A person having origins in any of the black racial groups of Africa.

· White: A person having origins in any of the original peoples of Europe, North Africa, or the Middle East. (cultural  competency for the health professional)

In the healthcare setting it is very important for health professionals to understand cultural differences among and between groups. In health care settings, cultural alertness, compassion, and competence conducts are essential because even such concepts as health, illness, suffering, and care mean different things to different people. Being knowledgeable of cultural customs enables health care providers to provide better service and help avoid misconstructions among staff, residents/patients, and families. Health care providers trained in cultural competency:

– Demonstrate greater understanding of the central role of culture in healthcare

-Recognize common barriers to cultural understanding among providers, staff, and residents/patients

-Identify characteristics of cultural competence in health care settings

-Interpret and respond effectively to diverse older adults’ verbal and nonverbal communication cues

– Assess and respond to differences in values, beliefs, and health behaviors among diverse populations and older adults

-Demonstrate commitment to culturally and linguistically appropriate services

-Work more effectively with diverse health care staff.

-Act as leaders, mentors, and role models for other health care providers (Dawn Lehman, Paula Fenza, &  and Linda Hollinger-Smith)

Protocols can be defined as an official procedures or system process’ implemented by a facility, institution, or government establishment. Standards of care delivery is defined as a diagnostic and/or treatment process that a health care provider or professional must adhere to base on a certain type of condition, condition, and/or circumstance. Policy is defined as course of action adopted by a business, corporation, hospital, and/or government establishment (Shiel, 2018).

At the practice level, protocols are what healthcare workers must perform as a guide to a management of a clinical situation and is incorporated into systems as a way healthcare professionals to provide the best evidenced-based care to their patients (n.d.). At the state level and federal level, professional expectations are established and provide the consistency to ensure quality of care. Nurses are expected to follow state and federal level regulations to protect the patient. If the standards of care according to state and federal levels are not met, legal implications can occur as the nurse can be found violating the standard of care. The legal implications can lead to malpractice on the health care professional (n.d.).

A perception that patients have regarding health care delivery system is that health care professionals are held to a standard and must be competent to perform their duties. Patients understand their condition with expectations regarding their treatments, if their treatments are not met, Patients know well enough to file complaints or legal action against the health care employee. From a provider perspective, health care professionals must attend proper schooling and complete a license exam. Having that license ensures that you are competent. The license can be revoked if you are unable to perform your duties therefore a health professional must be responsible and accountable for their actions.

Protocols are an agreed framework outlining the care that will be provided to patients in a designated area of practice. An example of this is a protocol to evaluate and discontinue unnecessary urinary catheters. This protocol has a set of guidelines that can be followed and carried out without a physicians order.

Standard of care delivery describes the care patients should be offered by health professionals and health services for a specific clinical condition or defined clinical pathway in line with current best evidence. (Clinical Care Standards, n.d.)

Health policy refers to decisions, plans, and actions that are undertaken to achieve specific health care goals within a society. An explicit health policy can achieve several things: it defines a vision for the future which in turn helps to establish targets and points of reference for the short and medium term. It outlines priorities and the expected roles of different groups; and it builds consensus and informs people. (Health policy, 2013)

Patient wants satisfactory health treatment, providers focus on patient safety, payers are responsible for enabling the process of patient access and policy makers have viewpoint to provide services, plan and manage health care policies.

Among all, patients’ perception needs to be discuss in detail here because insights of providers, payers and policy makers are concerned with them and their treatment. In a patient’s viewpoint, he or she is expecting, competent, compassionate and ethical care.
