Week 3: The Nurse’s Role in Helping
Populations Understand Genetic and
Cultural Influences on Health
Individuals who practice cultural competency and humility carefully consider the
backgrounds, beliefs, and attitudes of individuals whom they serve and deliver care
(Turnock, 2016). According to Degazon and Perdue (2016), culture determines how health
information is processed, how health problems are expressed, and who may provide care
to the population or patient.
In nursing, cultural competence is rooted in the idea that nurses often have to provide care
for individuals who are not of their same ethnic or cultural group. In fact, the definition of
culture is broadening in the United States. The enhanced National Culturally and
Linguistically Appropriate Services Standards, developed by the Department of Health and
Human Services (HHS) Office of Minority Health in 2001, now recognize religion and
spirituality, lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender individuals, deaf and hearing-impaired
individuals, and blind and vision-impaired persons as individual cultures. The new
standards have established congruency with other standards in the field, and include
health literacy issues and patient safety and satisfaction principles. Furthermore, the HHS
Office of Minority Health provides support to organizations responding to a wide diversity
of patient populations and seeks to eliminate ethnic and racial disparities.

Discussion: Evaluating Culture From the
Nursing Perspective
This week, we will examine a case study about smokers in Poland. As noted in the Center
for Global Development and Jassem, Przewozniak, & Zatonski (2014), prior to 1989, Poland
had the highest rate of smoking in the world, with three-fourths of all men aged 2060
smoking every day at a rate of 3,500 cigarettes per person per year. It should be noted that
30% of all women smoked every day, as well. This behavior resulted in a life expectancy of
about 60 years due to the highest rates of lung cancer in the world and all-time high levels
of smoking-related cancers and cardiovascular and respiratory disease.
To prepare for this Discussion, you will be required to read Case 14 by the Center for Global
Development and complete readings in Stanhope and Lancaster, then respond to the
following questions:
What happened to change the culture of smoking in Poland?
Understanding that we all have bias when discussing health issues and precipitating
factors, what social and political factors allowed cigarette smoking to become a part
of the Polish culture?
Reflecting on your own practice, how do you overcome cultural bias? Do you find it
more difficult to deal with some groups than others? How do people use the cultural
information that they learn about others? Do you think this leads to stereotyping?
Does cultural knowledge influence or change your practice and interaction with
others?
By Day 3
Post your response to this Discussion.
Support your response with references from the professional nursing literature.
Notes Initial Post: This should be a 3-paragraph (at least 350 words) response. Be
sure to use evidence from the readings and include in-text citations. Utilize essay-
level writing practice and skills, including the use of transitional
material and organizational frames. Avoid quotes; paraphrase to incorporate evidence
into your own writing. A reference list is required. Use the most current
evidence (usually ≤ 5 years old).
