There are many studies that reveal that blacks generally mistrust the healthcare system, receive a lower quality of care, and use fewer medical services in general than whites (Dayer-Berenson, 2014). Tasks: In a minimum of 200 words, post your response to the following: A nurse at a public health clinic reads statistics that the local hospital has seen an increase in the number of emergency center visits among those in the black/African American community. She also notices that there has been a decrease in the number of black/African American patients visiting the public health clinic, and when black/African American patients do show up to the clinic, they are reluctant to talk about their health care conditions. •Based on the nurse’s knowledge of health disparities impacting this population, what health conditions or diseases would the nurse target for a prevention campaign? •What are some possible reasons emergency center visits have increased while public health clinic visits have decreased? •What strategies would you suggest to reduce mistrust?
