Running head: CULTURAL HERITAGE TRADITIONS Cultural Heritage Traditions Michelle Pierson, RN Grand Canyon University Family Centered Health Promotion NRS-429-V Leslie Greenberg August 12, 2012 Cultural Heritage Traditions Heritage and culture plays an important role in a person’s life. It can affect a person’s beliefs, habits, choices, and behaviors (Edelman & Mandel, 2010, p. 17). To provide competent care nurses must be able to understand different cultures, and identify how a person’s heritage can affect their health. The Heritage Assessment tool (HAT) can be used to help healthcare workers understand their patients, thus enabling them to provide culturally competent, holistic care. This paper will compare three different cultures, Mixed American, Hispanic and Jewish-American, and how these cultures affected the patient’s health maintenance, protection and restoration.
