1. When on the job, though, cultural competence may not be as well defined. For instance, Dr. Margaret Andrews, R.N., F.A.A.N., C.T.N., Director and professor of nursing at the University of Michigan-Flint, cites instances of health care practitioners suspecting child abuse when children have shown up at doctors’ offices with red marks from the Asian practice of coining. Coining—the custom of rubbing coins over the skin (especially ribs of children with a cold) to create friction and warmth to rid the body of what is assumed to be bad winds or to fight off a cold—also leaves red marks on the skin. If you are not aware of the practice, it might raise suspicions of maltreatment. The idea of coining, says Andrews, is not so different from Western practices of trying to restore balance to the body. The outcome looks a little different, but it helps if the medical staff is aware of the practice and any other practices of the cultures they frequently treat. They can then respectfully and eff...

1. Culture can be defined as the “personal identification, language, thoughts, communications, actions, customs, beliefs, values, and institutions that are often specific to ethnic, racial, religious, geographic, or social groups.”For both patients and providers, healthcare is defined through a cultural lens.An individual’s cultural affiliations can affect where and how they seek care, how they describe symptoms, how they select treatment options, and whether they follow care recommendations.Similarly, providers bring their own cultural orientations, including the culture of medicine. Cultural competence in healthcare refers to the “ability of systems to provide care to patients with diverse values, beliefs and behaviors, including the tailoring of healthcare delivery to meet patients’ social, cultural and linguistic needs.”Being a culturally competent health system requires behaviors, attitudes, and policies that support effective interactions in cross-cultural situations.

Health care quality in the Far East: China, Japan

12.29.2357 hours ago

1. Japan spends a very healthy 8.2% of its GDP on health care (roughly the same as Canada and the Netherlands), has a good ratio of doctors to population (nearly 3 per 1,000 people — similar to the UK), and the performance of its health care system places it at 10th place in the world, according to the World Health Organization (WHO) World health report published in 2000. These statistics are reflected in the high standard of care available to both nationals and foreigners in the country, which is paid for through a mandatory health scheme — either through the employer or directly by the individual. Resident expats are required to enrol on either one of these schemes, whether or not they choose to top this up with private medical insurance. The employer-based scheme only covers some of the cost of treatment (in the region of 70% to 80%, depending on what the treatment is for and who is being treated), and covers the worker and their dependent family.
