Ethical Dilemma as a Patient Advocate

Consider an ethical dilemma that you have encountered in your own

This week you will examine how to be a patient advocate for all individuals, particularly those who are from a different culture than your own.

First, consider an ethical dilemma that you have encountered in your own nursing practice—choose one that was caused by a misunderstanding between people from different cultures. Describe that situation clearly. (feel free to make up a situation, or maybe use vaccines. I once faced a Spanish speaking family who was poorly educated on the use of vaccines and the benefits, they believed we were just injecting chemicals into the body that would give them cancer and that they were too expensive. they did not understand that their insurance would pay for the vaccine and the vaccines themselves were in the long run life saving measures)

How did each group or individual perceive the dilemma? (Present both sides, objectively.)

Identify the conflicting values and belief systems held by each group. (Spanish culture tends to have limited funds and means to education….that could go along with my vaccine incident) …but truly feel free to write what ever

What data was missing—what information did the health care providers not have about the patient’s culture?

Next, define culturally congruent care.
