Describe about the Cultural Competence in Health Care for Practices of Campaigns.
Health care is very much a social encounter for it involves taking care of ethnically and culturally diverse people. Health care is a social process that involves participation of at least two humans. It is a person who provides diagnosis, treatment, medicines, and preventive measures to another person. Prescription of medicines, taking care, and treating a patient requires providers. Taking a medicine on one’s own is not a healthcare process and thus not social for it does not involve another person in the process. Even though latest technological advancement has reduced human labor and more and more utilization of machines, major operations like heart transplant requires human hand. Thus, there is an interaction between the patient and the medical practitioner (Davis et al., 2014). Even the simplest task of taking care of a patient is a social encounter. Such encounters are routinely done in hospitals and medical care centers. Health care provisions are thus for the good of people and the society as a whole. Neurological and mental health care are especially based on social encounters. Isolation may make a person psychologically ill and the treatment would require social interaction of the individual. The provision and distribution of food, water, and medicines is done by humans thereby increasing the interaction between humans. Health care services are thus categorized into goods that are essentially social (Durey, 2013).
