In the play “Disgraced” the character Amir is born in America to a Muslim family. He was raised as a devout Muslim, though he ends up despising and leaving Islam. It is with Amir that I relate to and understand the most. He is an American and yet because of the religion he was born to and the color of his skin no one accepts the fact that he is not a Muslim, not even those closest to him. It is something that his American wife is fascinated with.
Operational definitions: Critical care nursing is defined as the field of nursing with an attention on the most extreme care of the unstable or critically ill patients following extensive surgery, injury and/or life-threatening diseases. (Australia 's Future Health Workforce - Nurses, 2014) Implications: The consistency in the reactions to moral distress experience among participants is remarkable and informative to those working in critical care units and for decision makers. Moral distress as defined by Leggett, 2013 is a state of the psychological disequilibrium that, ones experience when they know the right ethical decision to make but they cannot make it due to institutional constraints (Leggett, 2013). Additionally, Weinzimmer, et al, 2014 characterized moral distress as a phenomenon in which a healthcare professional perceives an ethically preferable or morally right course of action to take, yet internal or external constraints make it nearly impossible to pursue that course. (Weinzimmer, et al, 2014) Health Status: as defined in medical dictionary; A generic term for the health (good or poor) of a person, group or population in a particular area, especially when compared to other areas or with national data, which level of health of an individual person, a group or a population as assessed by that
As I grew I’d share with my friends the chupacabra myth only to discover that they had no idea what I was talking about. Why didn’t they know about the chupacabra? The most probable reason would be that their culture has different stories and fairytales than mine. This is because culture dramatically affects the way someone perceives the world. Culture is frequently passed down through family generations which include various traditions, fashion styles, and personality/behavior.

A second example we see is when Joel does not come from a wealthy family is when we see boys from his previous school. The two boys from Joel’s previous school do not have very good uniforms and they do not use proper wording. Joel and his family are represented as people who stand up for what they believe in and not afraid to fight throughout this whole TV show. Joel and his parents fight for the right that he does not have to sing the national anthem if he does not believe in it. This representation would have been influenced by historical events such as the 1967 Australian referendum when indigenous people got a right to vote “we used to thrown in with the flora and fauna until there was a national referendum”.
Mernissi’s and her family lives’ in a culture where religion and tradition are a priority in their lives. There are many individuals in today’s society that are involved in this type of lively hood; these individuals put their religion and tradition first before their happiness. Mernissi’s explained that they had to share a house with their family members because it was part of their tradition, I honestly would not be able to live in a big house with a whole bunch of my family members. This type of society doesn’t allow the person to become independent. Also, not being able to do what makes you happy because the religion deprives it would make an individual feel like an animal trapped in a cage.
Heritage has impacted my life in many good and bad ways, growing up I was afraid to express my culture and ethnicity. My only concern about not expressing who I truly was is that I may not be accepted for who I am. Growing up Asian I went through a lot phases where I became the main target for racism. I would always question myself and ask “What is wrong with me and my culture?”, “Why am I the target?”, “When was it ever okay to bring someone down and make them feel worthless?”. At that moment I would not just only hide who I really am but I would lie to myself and say that, that’s not really me.
Whereas in Muslim religion, they don’t believe in destiny. Furthermore, shared knowledge shapes the personal knowledge in which the religious rules and beliefs are concerned. In Hinduism, you cannot marry a person from another religion and that’s what almost all people belief and everyone follows, which why it is shared knowledge. However, I do not agree with knowledge system why I should only get marry with person from my religion, why not from other religion? Is it because religion says so or that’s what our shared knowledge?
Bp is read from patients as a matter of determining illness by monitoring what is known as a NEWS score, presenting a validating number to recognise the level of health of an individual. (Royal College of Nursing, 2015) Hypertension, high blood pressure, or hypotension, low blood pressure, can be a sign of a decreased state of health for my patients, therefore it was imperative that a bp exam is carried out in the correct way for the
Didion then claims that morality is a “social code”. The usage of the “social code” makes the interpretation of morality, once again, have a negative connotation. The word “social code” implies that morality is not an individual perception, but a social expectation. Then, Didion states her observation that many elders come to live in desert valley to “sing a prayer”. She states, “I cannot hear them and do not want to.
We know that Alva is a Pacific Islander, their traditions and cultures are very different from Latino cultures. Alva’s family was not pleased by her decision to marry someone outside her race. In their wedding traditions, much emphasis is placed on the opinion of their elders and a lot of prayer and family event traditions are practiced during the ceremony. Pacific islanders traditions and customs are about having a united family, were they all work together for the good of their community. In Jesu’s family, we know he is a Latino, and just like Alva’s family, his family was not very fond of the idea of him marrying outside his race and cultural background.
Health outcomes refers to the effect healthcare activities have on an individual, group or population. It 's evident that even with the presence of anti-discrimination and equal opportunities legislation, Indigenous Australians have inferior health outcomes than non-Indigenous Australians. The dissimilarities in health status between Native and non-Native Australians are closely linked with the allocation of health determinants such as income levels and housing conditions, education levels and access to healthcare services. Income levels and housing conditions can easily be identified as an important determinant of health. Many health outcomes, including life expectancy and infant mortality can be associated with inequalities of income distribution
When you talk about your cultural identity, not everyone will have the same things in common. The main things that make up my cultural identity is my age, gender, the music I listen to, the food I eat, and the state I live in. Somethings we will have in common, but no two people will have everything in common. Everybody’s cultural identity will be different, even if you are siblings. Things about your cultural identity makes you different from others even if you are family.
People who had a criminal record, mental condition or political views were considered undesirable, even then if you had none of the three things listed above you had to be European or British decent. In some rare cases they accepted people from Asia but that was only because they possessed the qualities they needed, for example if they were a doctor or chef. The story of the Tong Way family explains the impact of the White Australia policy on Chinese and other non-European residents. The Tong Way family migrated to Australia in the early 20th century, even though they were allowed to migrate, they were given no choice but to change their beliefs and cultural values, for example all members of the family wore Western dresses and were forced to use Christian names, like John, Mary, Joseph, Samuel, Doris and Hedley, this was very common for Chinese families in the 20th century, even after all the restrictions they faced they were still able to survive. Walsh,
American and Australian native residential boarding schools have a lot in common, since they both s have the same goal.Which was to assimilate Native children into Western culture. Both Native American children and Aboriginal were taken to the boarding school by force.Their family did not have the option to keep their children either. Both System were sponsored by churches and the government backing.However their are some difference as in Australia the focus on who was taken to the residential boarding school was on half-caste(Aboriginal children that mixed with white).They also intended removal to be a permanent separation from the family, and community. while in America the focus was on all Native American Children, both mixed and full
