Use books to help you start thinking about a group or population and how characteristics will influence how you provide care.  Examples of potential issues are:

  • do they understand healthcare discussions, the specific terms or what they mean?
  • will they question a diagnosis to the doctor? only ask questions of a nurse?
  • do they have insurance? is there a support network to help them continue care at home?

  Here's a link to the list of books we have for this assignment. These books are at the NMC Library service desk.
