Medical history Jerome has a history of anxiety and depression. He joined your clinic as a patient 5 years ago, at which time he was taking sertraline for moderately severe depression and associated panic attacks. This was prescribed by his previous provider. The sertraline was effective and Jerome stopped taking the medication after 6 months of treatment. He has not returned to the clinic since that time. Jerome is otherwise physically fit and well and is not prescribed any medication. On examination, Jerome describes a lack of drive and energy for the past six weeks. He feels stressed at having to face his job, but is still going to work. Jerome admits trying to cope with disrupted sleep patterns by drinking more alcohol than usual. He is now drinking 3 bottles of beer every night instead of only twice per week as he used to. His physical examination is normal but he appears to be sad and apathetic.

individual projecct and post
Racial and ethnic diversity is increasing in the United States, and healthcare organizations have been working to decrease inequities in access and quality of healthcare. Delivery of healthcare services must be responsive to an individual’s communication needs, preferred language, health-literacy level, and cultural beliefs and practices. To help healthcare organizations establish guidelines for meeting the needs of a diverse patient population, the Office of Minority Health of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) developed the Culturally and Linguistically Appropriate Services (CLAS) standards. The CLAS standards are designed to improve health outcomes and reduce health inequities by showing respect for the culture and language preferences of patients.
Review the standards on this Web site.
Consider the CLAS standards as you watch the following case study videos:
Cultural and Religious Beliefs
Using Language Access Services
Culturally Tailored Healthcare in Orthopedics
Culturally Tailored Healthcare in Obstetrics
Choose 1 video case study as the basis for your paper, and answer the following questions:
Briefly describe what type of healthcare inequity was depicted in the video.
Which CLAS standards are or are not demonstrated in the video? How would meeting the standards reduce health inequity in the example that you chose?
What could the healthcare organization do better to provide patients with the best care and eliminate the health inequities illustrated in the video?
If you were faced with similar types of situations in the future, explain how you would be better prepared to handle them appropriately after viewing the standards. APA STYLE

After the conversation, you will document the interactions using the form provided and following the guidelines instructions for each column.IPR Form ExplanationThe IPR is completed with the form to guide you, and the rubric to explain the grading process for content.IPR Form
The first column is for you, the nursing student’s, comments/ questions, and responses. You may want to include the introduction process. It is understandable if the initial conversation is more superficial to establish rapport. You may not want to include all of this but move on to the more focused interaction. Your nonverbal communication is included here.
Then, the conversation will move to a focus on the client’s feelings, concerns, issues as he/she has identified them. After the introduction, it may be beneficial to establish with the client a short- term goal for the interaction.
The second column is for the client’s comments, questions, responses. Also, the nonverbal reactions of the client are included in this column.
The middle column is for you to write what you are thinking or feeling.
The last two columns are for you to document the technique that you used in that portion of the conversation. If it is a non – therapeutic response, you are to write the response and think of how you could revise to more therapeutic response. You can change any response if you think of how you could have responded differently but, identify and change all non – therapeutic responses.
