Overview:
The objective of this task is to not only explore various health issues, vulnerabilities, and inequities for populations with differing cultural needs, but also to reflect on your own learning and cultural awareness as a future healthcare provider.
A minimum of five (5) academic references are required using APA 7th Edition.
Word Count:
1500 words +/- 10% References:
Research and evidence:
Your response should include analysis and synthesis of research.
You are required to reference a minimum of five (5) ACADEMIC sources (e.g., textbooks,
Peer reviewed journal articles), as well as other sources, such as websites.
Resources should be no older than 7 years (unless Government Legislations/Acts or of historical significance).
Research is constantly evolving; it can be updated or challenged. Therefore, it is important to keep our knowledge up to date.
We encourage students to read widely and use the most current research you can find. If you have a journal article that falls outside the 7-year limit, ask the following:
• Have I searched for a more recent article? (Try searching using key words from the title of the reference you have.)
• Is there nothing more recent that could replace it?
• Does it contain important information that is relevant and have historical significance to my essay? Can I justify using an older source within my essay?
• An example of older resources that are acceptable:
o Hampton, R., Toombs, Maree, & ProQuest. (2013). Indigenous Australians and health: the wombat in the room. Oxford University Press.
