For this discussion, first, read chapter 7 in your textbook, Transcultural Concepts in Nursing Care.

Use the Critical Thinking Activity #5 on page 234 in your textbook to respond to the following questions:

  1. Explain the difference between gang membership in El Salvador and the United States.
  1. What are the cultural factors that are important to consider when you are planning nursing care for a patient like Jose?
  1. For an example, how do you view body tattoos?
  1. What are the issues related to political asylum, immigration, and the like?
  1. How would you assist Jose to meet his developmental needs?
  1. What might be the problems he will encounter in the U.S. society?
  1. What might be the problems he will encounter in the U.S. healthcare system?

Your initial post must be posted before you can view and respond to colleagues, must contain minimum of two (2) references, in addition to examples from your personal experiences to augment the topic. The goal is to make your post interesting and engaging so others will want to read/respond to it. Synthesize and summarize from your resources in order to avoid the use of direct quotes, which can often be dry and boring. No direct quotes are allowed in the discussion board posts.

Post a thoughtful response to at least two (2) other colleagues’ initial postings. Responses to colleagues should be supportive and helpful (examples of an acceptable comment are: “This is interesting – in my practice, we treated or resolved (diagnosis or issue) with (x, y, z meds, theory, management principle) and according to the literature…” and add supportive reference. Avoid comments such as “I agree” or “good comment.”
