I’m studying for my Health & Medical class and don’t understand how to answer this. Can you help me study?
Suppose that you are a health practitioner in the health field working with the HPV vaccine
The human papillomavirus vaccine has been shown to be effective in the prevention of cervical cancer among young women. Yet, among some populations here in the U.S., young women are not seeking the protection of the vaccine. The reasons have little to do with access to the vaccine and a lot more to do with the attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors (i.e., culture) associated with the HPV vaccine
Identify one issue within the concepts of health literacy and cultural awareness.Also, explain the differences between health literacy and cultural awareness. (Demonstrate how these might lead you to a different type of awareness.) Discuss how cultural differences in beliefs and attitudes may influence your work with different communities in relation to HPV vaccines. Discuss to what extent ethical principles of public health practices are considered.
