Write for your organization a 3–5-page impact report regarding the health concerns of a new immigrant population. Describe the population’s health concerns and issues, explain current pharmacological treatments, and explain how culture and traditional practices may affect use of pharmacology. Identify evidence-based strategies for the organization and nursing staff to use to educate the population and promote health and wellness.
1. Choose one of the global areas below as the area from which the population will be coming.
• Sub-Saharan Africa.
• Dominican Republic.
• Saudi Arabia.
2. Research the most common health concerns and issues for immigrants from your chosen global area, the pharmacological treatments that will likely be prescribed, and any cultural values or traditional practices that may impact patient outcomes.
***DIRECTIONS*** (Must answer all questions)
Once you have identified the population you will be using for this assessment, include the following in your impact report:
• Describe the health concerns and issues for the population.
• Describe current pharmacological treatment regimens for the main health concerns and issues.
• Explain any traditional beliefs and practices associated with the health concerns and issues. Does the population engage in culturally based methods of treating the health concern?
• Explain how cultural values and traditional practices might affect acceptance and use of prescribed pharmacological treatments. Be sure to consider the relationship between quality patient outcomes, patient safety, and the appropriate use of pharmacology.
• Identify evidence-based, culturally sensitive strategies the organization can use to educate the population about the correct use of the pharmacology treatments.
• Identify evidence-based, culturally sensitive strategies the nursing staff can employ with the population to promote health and wellness.
