  • Assessment Instructions

    Imagine the county health department notifies your organization that a large number of immigrants are expected to be resettled in your area. The organization, wanting to be prepared to handle any health concerns of the population, tasks each department with readying for the influx of immigrants. Your supervisor asks you to prepare an impact report on the pharmacological needs of the population that can be shared with other departments.


    Complete the following as you prepare for your impact report:

    1. Choose one of the global areas below as the area from which the population will be coming.
      • Sub-Saharan Africa.
      • India.
      • China.
      • Dominican Republic.
      • Guatemala.
      • Jamaica.
      • Bangladesh.
      • Saudi Arabia.
      • Pakistan.
      • Mexico.
    2. Research the most common health concerns and issues for immigrants from your chosen global area, the pharmacological treatments that will likely be prescribed, and any cultural values or traditional practices that may impact patient outcomes.


    Once you have identified the population you will be using for this assessment, include the following in your impact report:

    • Describe the health concerns and issues for the population.
    • Describe current pharmacological treatment regimens for the main health concerns and issues.
    • Explain any traditional beliefs and practices associated with the health concerns and issues. Does the population engage in culturally based methods of treating the health concern?
    • Explain how cultural values and traditional practices might affect acceptance and use of prescribed pharmacological treatments. Be sure to consider the relationship between quality patient outcomes, patient safety, and the appropriate use of pharmacology.
    • Identify evidence-based, culturally sensitive strategies the organization can use to educate the population about the correct use of the pharmacology treatments.
    • Identify evidence-based, culturally sensitive strategies the nursing staff can employ with the population to promote health and wellness.

    Write this assessment as an impact report formatted as other reports of a similar nature in your organization or an organization with which you are familiar. Include a title page and reference page and follow APA guidelines for your in-text citations and references.

    Additional Requirements

    • Number of pages: 3–5
