You are a student undergoing your practical rotation at one of the leading hospitals in Perth. Your Clinical Supervisor has asked you to research the culture of a patient you are providing care for.
Mr. Kim Seng Lim, a 75 year old Chinese man, has been admitted to the hospital complaining of chest pains. He migrated from Singapore to Australia, after the death of his wife. Mr. Lim lives in Perth with his son and family
In this assessment, students are asked to research the Chinese culture. Write an essay of 1000 words on caring for a patient from this particular culture. Students are advised to use the lecture notes as a guide. Please be mindful that the lecture notes cannot be used as a reference. It is most important for students to highlight what a health professional must take into account for caring for the patient in the hospital. Consider the following: • How this cultural group understands life processes; • How this cultural group defines health and illness; • What this cultural group does to maintain wellness; • What this cultural group believes to be the causes of illness; • How do traditional healers cure and care for members of this cultural group and • How the cultural background of the nurse influences the way in which care is delivered.
