Critical Thinking Paper
You have been asked to organize a community health fair at a local public school. The health fair will provide information and education on the following topics related to health promotion:
Immunizations Importance of healthy diet and exercise Avoidance of tobacco, drugs, and alcohol Responsible sexual behaviors (use of condoms, risk of sexually transmitted diseases including HIV/AIDS concerns related to early unintended pregnancies) Injury and violence prevention (motor vehicle crashes, firearms, poisonings, suffocation, falls, fires, and drowning)
The volunteers who will be manning the stations are from the health care community (doctors, nurses, dieticians, and social workers). You want to ensure that the team members take into consideration the familial health traditions and personal beliefs of the values of the people who will be attending the health fair. In a three-to-four page paper (excluding title and reference pages), identify potential areas where health care providers’ culture might differ from a community member’s culture. Describe the differences. What role, if any, will social control play in the development of the education materials presented?
Recommend potential strategies that the health care team can use when faced with a cultural practice that conflict with the medical model. Recommend strategies to increase community participation and enhance the relationships/partnerships between the medical community and members if the cultural diverse community. Incorporate a minimum of 2 APA citations from scholarly references.
Carefully review the Grading Rubric for the criteria that will be used to evaluate your assignment.
