Friedman et al. propose that nurses assess a family’s values by contrasting and comparing the values of a family to those of the dominant American culture, by looking at value congruency within the family, and by analyzing how the family’s values affect the health status of the family. In your work as a nurse or student nurse, describe one example of how you have used this approach or have seen another healthcare provider use this approach to assess the values of a patient or family related to healthcare practices.

A

I have witnessed quite many instances of the behavior driven by the American Core Value. One of the most recent examples was the patient’s desire to learn about the condition and the outcomes of the treatment. An adult white female (with a Master’s degree) was asking questions regarding her health condition. The patient was obviously an active decisionmaker as she was specifically interested in the effects of the prescribed drugs. She also revealed her concerns regarding some of these outcomes (as she wanted to use alternatives with fewer side effects or even milder impact on certain systems).

The illustrations of an alternative value are quite common, especially among ethnic minorities. For example, a middle-aged Asian immigrant was a passive receiver of care as she did not ask any questions and followed the provided recommendations. One of the reasons for this behavior is these people’s attitude towards authority. The doctor is in a position of power, so Asian patients tend to listen to the medical staff carefully without asking questions or providing any feedback.
