Cultural considerations and the Hispanic cardiac client
Language: 
English
Abstract: 

This article examines the cultural influences of the Hispanic patient, such as health beliefs, communication styles, family and religious values, and time perception. In order to design and deliver individualized comprehensive care with the client and family, these assessment factors must be explored to create a plan of care that is tailored to meet the individualized needs of the patient and family. Understanding cultural influences that are important to the Hispanic cardiac client in the home care setting will have a positive impact on the nurse-patient relationship, the plan of care, and the management of the cardiac disease.
