...a reminder that our patient’s values come first and respect their choices. Our role is to educate them about their treatment plan and make sure they are well informed, while letting go of our own attitudes. Determining, nursing practice are essential for dealing with day-to-day ethical issues (Jormsri, Kunaviktikul, Ketefian & Chaowalit, 2005). I recently had an Asian woman who presented with abdominal pain and requested to have cupping performed by a healer specialized in the field. I was initially at a loss, how was I going to find someone to perform cupping. I wanted to help this woman and when I asked my colleagues and manager they had no suggestions. So I contacted the department that handles cultural awareness and was able to get a lead on whom to call. After, two hours of my day spent looking for someone to call, I finally had my answer. I came back to give my patient an update on the progress and she was so relieved. It was like you could see the anxiety drain out of her. By the end of the day, the therapist arrived to do cupping with her and she was relaxed and expressed that she truly felt like I heard her. It was not easy and I did find myself getting frustrated with the process of trying to make something work that I knew very little about. I’m happy I followed through with it, because in the end every patient has a right to believe what they believe, even though her values and attitude toward medicine is very different than my own, I was able to put......

...According to the rubric created by online for students in China who have been accepted to go to college in the United States, the main differences that the Asian culture displays that Americans may not include: * Asians form a close small group of friends in which they feel a strong connection and will do whatever it takes to help each other out * Avoid confrontation and any topics that may have differing views * Focused on the past and the far future * Higher concentration on group cooperation and personal modesty (Predeparture Orientation for Chinese Students n.d.) American nurses should also keep in mind the home remedies that are traditionally performed by the Chinese that could be presented when assessing these patients. Cupping or coining may appear on the body as small patterned bruises on the back or chest (Standford School of Medicine, 2014). It could appear to be a form of physical abuse, but educating our medical staff will allow better understanding in the healing practices that differ between the two cultures. The Abuse Assessment Screen is a tool used by medical personal to accurately and gently assess patients of varying culture backgrounds whether or not they are experiencing abuse of any kind (Jarvis, 2012). Abuse is a very emotional subject, and some people who are experiencing it do not want to be judged by others and will hide the abuse if confronted regarding it. Others who are not experiencing abuse may become offended by the......

...or deformity (from fractures); patterned bruises, redness, burns, or lacerations (from inflicted injuries). It is important to note that any injury in an infant less than six months of age should be considered highly suspicious. There are, however, cultural beliefs that lend themselves to particular health practices that mimic signs of physical abuse. According to Vaughn, et al (2009), culturally based health attributions affect beliefs about disease causation, treatment, and health practices that aim to eliminate or prevent against disease. Two examples of such practices include Cao gio (coining), a practice of Southeast Asians involving the rubbing of a coin or spoon against the skin which produces a reddened or bruised area; and cupping, a Hispanic practice which uses a heated cup or glass over the affected area causing a suction and producing a dark red or bluish circular mark. Other cultural practices that could be construed as abuse include force-feeding infants or children, giving arsenic or lead to children, and withholding medically necessary transfusions. California had the highest number of Child Protective Services (CPS) referrals in the nation in 2012 (356,000) and is ranked third in the nation for the number of child fatalities resulting from maltreatment. Nurses, as mandatory reporters, can make referrals for suspicion of abuse by contacting the CPS Hotline and making a verbal report. A written report must be submitted within 36 hours of the......

Glass, plastic, or bamboo cups are heated and placed on the skin of the individuals back. It creates a vacuum which is a type of acupressure. It is also used to treat back, neck, and shoulder pain (Traditional beliefs, 2011). This is important information to know if marks on a patients back are noticed. It could be the result of cupping.

"A Muslim is a brother to every Muslim, he neither lets him down, nor does him injustice, nor gives him away".Therefore, if giving blood to a patient is necessary for his survival, then, according to Islam, it becomes mandatory to donate blood`, as a case of implementing a basic Islamic principle which makes it imperative to preserve human life. Two important main Islamic rules are also applicable here, namely: "Harm must be eliminated" & "Necessity overrules constraints". Further more it is in agreement with the Islamic principles of social justice.The Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him) says, "Cupping is a most useful type of medical treatment".

In the Hadith, there is an earnest call for phlebotomy and cupping, because of their proven benefits to man. It indicates that blood donation is not only harmless to the donor, but it is also useful to him, as it activates the process of replenishing blood cells. When blood is needed in the community, blood donation becomes a community as well as a person's individual obligation.

For example, she cooks soup with gingers and various Chinese herbs all together for hours to enhance the body immunity as she was told by her mother; these kinds of recipes are passed down from generation to generation, which were proven to be effective by evidence (Homemade Chinese soups, 2011). She also believes that Tai Chi contributes to the well-being. For health restoration, she seeks for acupuncture and cupping therapies for certain diseases that Western medicine has no efficient remedy for, such as Bell’s palsy, etc. The subject, however, sees her primary physician in the first place when she feels any discomforts. Since most of the eastern Asian countries were historically influenced by ancient Chinese culture, herbal medicines are being used as therapeutic approaches for Filipino and Chinese. For instance, Chinese oil is widely used by Filipinos to cure cold, dizziness and headache. Another popular remedy shared among Filipinos and Chinese is the fire cupping therapy used to heal joint pain considered to be caused by cold air. Nonetheless, Philippine was developed into a Christian based country later in the 19th century and prayer became a method of health practice. Among the three families interviewed, Hispanic and Filipino families both use spiritual beliefs for health practices as part of their health maintenance and wellness as well as folk medicines being used by Chinese American extensively.

Coffee vs Wine

...“Coffee vs. Wine” Social, Economic and Production Methods overview of both industries. This class will end with a Coffee Cupping vs. Wine Tasting. Price: $25 per person. All proceeds will revert to the Specialty Coffee Institute. Coffee Social - The vast majority of coffee producers in the world are small farmers (2.5 to 5 hectares). They plant their land with crops they need for their food survival. The remainder is planted with coffee to get extra money to accommodate their other needs (cloth, health, etc.). The literacy and education of these coffee farmers is very low. The folks who get to university are a very rare exception. Folks who finished high school are an exception. Standard of Living – Survival agriculture is the right word to describe the circumstances most of these farmers live in. Coffee producing countries are in general Third World Countries. A small group of coffee farmers have a high standard of living. Most of these have much larger farms and in general their education is at college level. Production Methods - Coffee and wine have a lot of similarities at the agricultural level. Processes are similar in both industries but change dramatically after the coffees (and grapes) get in the mill (winery) to be treated. Also, while wine making stops its process when bottling takes place, coffee still has to be submitted to roasting by a roast master who dramatically alters the finished product. (I like to compare the actions of a wine maker to that......

...revealed. The link between Moses and the environment around him is thoroughly presented in this story with precise detail. Another way in which the author shows the association between Moses’ character and nature, is through vibrant imagery. Jones is heavy on the description of Moses’ surroundings, but little is focused on Moses himself. Details of the environment are so evocative, the reader may feel like they are experiencing it themselves. For example, like Moses, the reader may see the ‘red orange’ (12) glow crossing the horizon, with the mountains surrounding it. Also, when he ‘breathes deeply’ (48), one could imagine him smiling pleasantly, delighting in the moment. Lastly, Moses could be seen below ‘the mighty summer leaves,’ (79) cupping his hands to collect the rain to wash his face. Here it is evident that he relishes nature in its entirety. It is clearly illustrated, through the rich imagery, the effect the natural world has on Moses....
