Questions:

Healthcare Diversity

The concept of healthcare diversity extends beyond cultural, racial, and religious personal identity. Healthcare professionals need to develop the ability to understand the extent of individual differences commonly referred to as diversity. The differences must be recognized, but to what extent is the healthcare provider’s obligation to accommodate? It must also be recognized that some cultures from around the globe view sickness through a different lens and are accustomed to different healthcare approaches and outcomes. Finally, the spectrum of diversity must be recognized as ranging from race and religion to amputee or the hearing impaired.

Based on your readings and research, answer the following:

  • What is the best approach to understanding diversity and why?
  • To what extent should the healthcare organization/professional accommodate?
  • Do you believe there are specific categories of diversity that must be recognized? What are they and why?
  • Do you believe the difference in defining diversity is within the lived experience of the patient?

To support your work, use your course and textbook readings. As in all assignments, cite your sources in your work and provide references for the citations in APA format.

Your initial posting should be addressed in 300–500 words
