Can you help me with my homework.

Diversity Module 1

For this discussion, first, review chapters 1, 2, and 4 in your textbook, Transcultural Concepts in Nursing Care, and complete the four Transcultural Modules.

Then, address the following questions:

1. In your own words define culture (1-2 sentences).

2. In your own words define diversity (1-2 sentences).

3. Next discuss self-assessment and explain why it is important (3-4 sentences).

4. Then in your own words, (in one paragraph) select a cultural theory or model and discuss its framework.

5. Lastly, describe the cultural theory’s or model’s influence on nursing practice (in one paragraph).

Your initial post must be posted before you can view and respond to colleagues, must contain minimum of two (2) references, in addition to examples from your personal experiences to augment the topic. The goal is to make your post interesting and engaging so others will want to read/respond to it. Synthesize and summarize from your resources in order to avoid the use of direct quotes, which can often be dry and boring. No direct quotes are allowed in the discussion board posts.

Post a thoughtful response to at least two (2) other colleagues’ initial postings. Responses to colleagues should be supportive and helpful (examples of an acceptable comment are: “This is interesting – in my practice, we treated or resolved (diagnosis or issue) with (x, y, z meds, theory, management principle) and according to the literature…” and add supportive reference. Avoid comments such as “I agree” or “good comment.”
