Document Content and Description Below

1. A man is terminally ill with end-stage prostate cancer. Which is the best statement about this man’s wellness? a. Wellness can only be achieved with aggressive medical interventions. b. Wellne... ss is not a real option for this client because he is terminally ill. c. Wellness is defined as the absence of disease. d. Nursing interventions can help empower a client to achieve a higher level of wellness. ANS: D Nursing interventions can help empower a client to achieve a higher level of wellness; a nurse can foster wellness in his or her clients. Wellness is defined by the individual and is multidimensional. It is not just the absence of disease. A wellness perspective is based on the belief that every person has an optimal level of health independent of his or her situation or functional level. Even in the presence of chronic illness or while dying, a movement toward wellness is possible if emphasis of care is placed on the promotion of well-being in a supportive environment. PTS: 1 DIF: Apply REF: p. 7 TOP: Nursing Process: Diagnosis MSC: Health Promotion and Maintenance 2. In differentiating between health and wellness in health care, which of the following statements is true? a. Health is a broad term encompassing attitudes and behaviors. b. The concept of illness prevention was never considered by previous generations. c. Wellness and self-actualization develop through learning and growth. d. Wellness is impossible when one’s health is compromised. ANS: A Health is a broad term that encompasses attitudes and behaviors; holistically, health includes wellness, which involves one’s whole being. The concept of illness prevention was never considered by previous generations; throughout history, basic self-care requirements have been recognized. Wellness and self-actualization develop through learning and growth—as basic needs are met, higher level needs can be satisfied in turn, with ever-deepening richness to life. Wellness is possible when one’s health is compromised—even with chronic illness, with multiple disabilities, or in dying, movement toward a higher level of wellness is possible. PTS: 1 DIF: Understand REF: p. 7 TOP: Nursing Process: Evaluation MSC: Health Promotion and Maintenance 3. Which racial or ethnic group has the highest life expectancy in the United States? a. Native Americans b. African Americans c. Hispanic Americans d. Asian and Pacific Island Americans NURSINGTB.COM Ebersole and Hess' Gerontological Nursing and Healthy Aging 5th Edition Touhy Test Bank NURSINGTB.COM Chapter 02: Cross-Cultural Caring and Aging Touhy & Jett: Ebersole and Hess’ Gerontological Nursing & Healthy Aging, 5th Edition MULTIPLE CHOICE 1. Which of the following is a true statement about differing health belief systems? a. Personalistic or magicoreligious beliefs have been superseded in Western minds by biomedical principles. b. In most cultures, older adults are likely to treat themselves using traditional methods before turning to biomedical professionals. c. Ayurvedic medicine is another name for traditional Chinese medicine. d. The belief that health depends on maintaining a balance among opposite qualities is characteristic of a magicoreligious belief system. ANS: B Older adults in most cultures usually have had experience with traditional methods that have worked as well as expected. After these treatments fail, older adults turn to the formal health care system. Even in the United States, it is common for older adults to pray for cures or wonder what they did to incur an illness as punishment. The Ayurvedic system is a naturalistic health belief system practiced in India and in some neighboring countries. This belief is characteristic of a holistic or naturalistic approach. PTS: 1 DIF: Understand REF: p. 16-17 TOP: Nursing Process: Assessment MSC: Health Promotion and Maintenance 2. Which of the following considerations is most likely to be true when working with an interpreter? a. An interpreter is never needed if the nurse speaks the same language as the patient. b. When working with interpreters, the nurse can use technical terms or metaphors. c. A patient’s young granddaughter who speaks fluent English would make the best interpreter because she is familiar with and loves the patient. d. The nurse should face the patient rather than the interpreter. ANS: D The nurse should face the patient rather than the interpreter is a true statement; the intent is to converse with the patient, not with a third party about the patient. Many reasons may prevent the patient from speaking directly to a nurse. Technical terms and metaphors may be difficult or impossible to translate. Cultural restrictions may prevent some topics from being spoken of to a grandparent or child. PTS: 1 DIF: Understand REF: p. 18-19 TOP: Nursing Process: Implementation MSC: Safe, Effective Care Environment 3. An older adult who is a traditional Chinese man has a blood pressure of 80/54 mm Hg and refuses to remain in the bed. Which intervention should the nurse use to promote and maintain his health? a. Have the health care provider speak to him. b. Use principles of the holistic health system. c. Ask about his perceptions and treatment ideas. [Show More]
