Review the Case Example on page 260 in Chapter 12 in your text. Using the skills, you have already gained from previous courses, what would you say to the nurse who told Mrs. L, “I am sure that delaying your lunch until we get you settled won’t hurt you a bit?” How can the nurse who made these statements improve her biases: “Isn’t it sad that all she can seem to focus on is her lunch?

Discussion Question: 8
Almost half the children living in the U. S. live in poverty (Kersey-Matusiak, 2019). Social determinants of childhood health often lead to adverse health outcomes in children and across the life span.
Conduct a literature search to locate a journal article related to children living in poverty, maltreated children, LGBTQ children, or immigrant children. What are health risks disproportionately higher for the child population you selected? What supports could you offer the family through local or national organizations to address your selected population’s health risks? What factors influence your motivation to provide culturally sensitive care to your chosen population?
