Developing a Culturally Competent Teaching Plan for a Patient with Peptic Ulcer Disease
The RN is developing a teaching plan for a male patient with a new diagnosis of peptic ulcer disease related to an H. pylori infection.
The patient immigrated to the United States from Vietnam two years ago with his extended family. He denies any current use of alcohol but has smoked one pack of cigarettes per day for the last 20 years. He reports increased fatigue during exercise, uses Chinese medicine to manage frequent muscle pain and has noted an occasional black bowel movement.
Initial Discussion Post:
1. Identify three (3) items related to the medical diagnosis that the RN needs to include in the teaching plan for this patient.
2. How will the RN incorporate cultural considerations into the teaching plan for this patient?
3. Identify one (1) member of the interprofessional health care team that should be included in this education plan. What is the role of this member?
