Spirituality in Health Care: AGACNP role in assessing the health and wellness of a specific patient population
Different cultural groups have unique beliefs and attitudes about health promotion and spirituality. It is important for a nurse practitioner to understand and adapt to those cultural and spiritual beliefs when educating patients.
Write an essay of 750-1,000 words defining the AGACNP role of assessing the health and wellness of a specific patient population. Your essay should include three to five peer-reviewed sources.
A patient population can be a group of patients with the same chronic disease, same ethnicity, from the same community, or any other defined specific group.
Your essay should cover the following:
- Establish how the specific patient population views chronic diseases and the maintenance of wellness.
- Explain the cultural and spiritual factors that may affect the attitudes of patients and families toward health promotion and maintenance.
- Evaluate how your own personal worldview influences your attitudes and beliefs toward health maintenance of this patient population.
- Evaluate how cultural bias may result in very different health-related preferences and perceptions.
