Assignment Week 1 – Cultural Aspects Assignment
Look at your personal culture or one you are able to observe. Choose an aspect of this culture of your choice. The aspect you select could a type or quality of food, medical/clinical philosophy, substance use, etc.
In no more than 3 pages, discuss in detail and present in a reflection paper the following themes from the aspect you selected;
a) on how it may be considered bad (or unhealthy) in one culture and fine in another. b) Include any contextual challenges that may exist with this duality that exists. Propose how research, public health, medical & care providers can integrate this understanding in our service provision.
You may choose to include a personal opinion â€“ but this exercise asks you to consider both sides of the discussion and present a view point that stems from â€œpotential opportunitiesâ€ and not blame.
