When a client is from a different cultural background, the nurse should identify how these cultural variations affect the health problem. For example, if someone comes from a poorer community that gets a lot of smog, this cultural difference could mean their lungs won’t handle being pumped full of chemicals to put them under.

Someone else may be more prone to burn if left under a heat lamp due to pale skin, a cultural difference meant to keep us protected from being in the sun too much if we’re from climates that don’t have a lot of harsh sunlight.

Whatever the cultural difference is, the nurse needs to know what it is and what to do about it so that they can still treat the original malady.

Identify how these cultural variables affect the health problem

Without assessment and identification of the cultural needs, the nurse cannot begin to understand how these might influence the health problem or health care management.
