Introduction The U.S. population demographics have changed tremendously over the couple previous decades, hence, racial and ethnic diversity continue to increase in the country. This diversity has led to incorporation of different cultures in the country, which influence health and decision-making in various ways. Culture could be described as an umbrella term that encompasses the way of life of a particular group of people. . Culture has a vast influence on health since it affects the perceptions on health, beliefs regarding the causes of diseases, illness and death, approaches to health promotion, and norms. In the U.

This presentation will target the Hispanic subgroup and explain how their culture influences health decision making.

Purnell’s Model encourages practitioners to doctors to learn about the cultural traditions of the patients they care for and remain nonjudgmental when patients’ values differ from theirs. The model stipulates twelve cultural domains that mutually affect one another. The cultural 12 domains of Purnell Model will be discussed below.
