Discussion QUESTION

One of the tasks that health care professionals perform is that of translating health care information so laypersons can understand that information. All too frequently we forget that what is everyday language to us is as foreign as Klingon (Star Trek) or Sindarin (Lord of the Rings) to others. It is our responsibility to convey health information so it can be understood. The task in this assignment is to review an article (one you have used in a previous assignment) and create an explanation of that article that would be understood by a layperson.

Some useful material can be found in the Module 4 Instructional Materials folder.

1. Read the ACOG article (Committee on Health Care for Underserved Women) also found in the Instructional Materials folder in Module 3.
2. Provide an explanation of the relationship between the social determinants of health and cultural awareness in the delivery of health care. This explanation must be tailored to the understanding of a layperson.
3. The initial post explanation needs to be between 250-300 words in length.
4. A minimum of one (1) reference is required for the initial post. This reference will be in addition to any reference you wish to use from the ACOG article. It is okay to use textbook material to support points in the discussion, but it does not count towards the required minimum reference.
5. As with the other discussion boards you need to respond to two (2) peers. The responses must be between 150-200 words each. Remember that the responses cannot be posted on the same day that you post the initial post.
