Language Barriers and Basic of Africa Ethnic Culture

    Among Asian/Pacific Islanders, respect is automatically given to most healthcare providers who are thought of as knowledgeable. Asians are sensitive and formal, so using a nonthreatening approach is necessary before caring for them. They must be given permission to ask a question but are not offended by questions from others. Language barriers are usually the first and biggest obstacles to overcome in working with people of Asian/Pacific Islander descent.

Health Awareness of Africa Ethnic Culture

    One specific characteristic to be noted of the Japanese subculture is a childlike dependency known as amae. This dependent behavior continues through adulthood but is especially evident when people are ill. Awareness of this common behavior pattern will allow nurses to approach patients of Japanese heritage in a culturally relevant and tolerant manner (Hisama, 2000). 

Leaning Approaches of Africa Ethnic Culture

    Asian/Pacific Islanders' approach to learning involves repetition and rote memorization of information. The learning style of Asians is essentially passive no personal opinions, no confrontations, no challenges, and no outward disagreements. Nurses should be aware that in the Asians' wish to save face for themselves and others, they avoid being disruptive and will agree to what is said. 

Health Regarding Decision Making of Africa Ethnic Culture

    Decision making, however, is a family affair. Family members, especially the male authority figure, must be included in identifying the best solution for a situation. Asians are easily shamed, so patients must be reassured and told what is considered acceptable behavior by Western moral and legal standards. Nods of the head do not necessarily mean agreement or understanding. Questions need to be asked in several ways to confirm that they understand any instructional messages given.

Two Way Education Process of Africa Ethnic Culture

    When working with members of this Asian/Pacific Islander culture, nurses must remember that education is most effective when it is a two-way process. Patients and their families need to be aware of the beliefs and practices of American culture, and, in turn, the nurse needs to recognize the challenges created by the cultural beliefs and practices of this ethnic group. 

    This mutual understanding will strengthen the therapeutic relationship between the nurse and the patient to create an emotional environment that is appropriate for learning to take place (Park, Chesla, Rehm, & Chun, 2011).
