Provide a description of your population and the influences/ issues that may have led to and contributed to the health problem. Is it a genetic predisposition, environmental issue, related to health disparities, determinants of health, inadequate access to the healthcare system, inadequate nutrition, lack of resources? Does your population have a genetic predisposition to the health problem you have identified? State what these are and how genetics and culture may have a profound effect on the health outcomes for the population.
Consider the cultural considerations that might inform your approach to caring for this population. How will this influence the education, interventions, and care planning for the population?
