NURS 6512 Wk 2 DB Main Post Choosen scenario : MR, a 23-year-old Native American male comes in to see you because he has been having anxiety and wants something to help him. He has been smoking "pot" and says he drinks to help him too. He tells you he is afraid that he will not get into Heaven if he continues in this lifestyle. He is not taking any prescriptions medications and denies drug use. He has a positive family history of diabetes, hypertension, and alcoholism. Socioeconomic The World Health Organization (2017) defines social determinants of health as the conditions in which people are born, grow, live, work and age. These circumstances are influenced by the availability, or the lack thereof, of money and other necessary resources. The Indian Health Service Program which was created in the 1950s to provide culturally appropriate healthcare to American Indian communities, remains to this day, underfunded. This insufficient funding is responsible for delays and deficiencies in preventative services, along with primary and specialty treatment (Espey et al., 2014).
