In this assignment, you will explore the cultural context of a global health problem and consider how the structure of a health care system affects the way the problem is addressed.
Step 1: Identify a global health problem.
Choose ONE health problem that affects people around the world, and that is impacted by cultural practices. Find reliable statistics that support the global nature of this problem.
Step 2: Gather data.
Find scholarly sources, research and gather global data about the health problem you have identified. For example, the World Health Organization posts disease and health risk prevalence data on a country-by-country basis. Searching websites of humanitarian organizations such as Doctors Without Borders, Operation Smile, and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation can provide additional context about the health problem.
Step 3: Create the slide presentation.
Address the following points in your 10-12 slide presentation:
Nursing perspectives of the problem
Health care system impact on the problem
Be sure to use statistics to substantiate the health problem. Make sure that you use APA format to properly cite any sources.
Step 4: Add presenter’s notes.
Include talking points and details in the notes area for each slide. These notes should document what you would say to an audience about each slide if you were to present in person.
