disapproved of Mr. Yost using the “traditional” eastern medicines. Because of this small disagreement that they ran into Mr. Yost is no longer telling Dr. Yee that he has continued to use this medicine against his wishes. Mr. Yost has continued to get sick and Dr. Yee can’t understand the reasoning behind this. Dr. Yee eventually figures out that Mr. Yost has lead anemia and can’t figure out the reason why if he has discontinued his use the eastern medicines. For Mr. Yost to give Dr. Yee the critical information he needs to improve his health they need to establish a mutual trust. This will enable Mr. Yost to freely communicate his total medical practices with Dr. Yee. They also need to also establish a cultural competency. Cultural competency is one of the most important factors in decreasing the disparity gap in healthcare (Office of Minority Health, 2005). This helps the patients and doctors come together and discuss their health concerns without being detrimental to the conversation, but enhance it (Office of Minority Health, 2005). In establishing this cultural competency instead of doctors automatically disapproving of patients health practices they will be respectful and accommodating to their various beliefs and needs (Office of Minority Health, 2005). In the case of Dr. Yee and Mr. Yost, Dr. Yee will be more supportive and instead of attacking Mr. Yost beliefs he can inform him in a polite way that the eastern medicines can be having negative effects on his health.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
