Chapter 02: Health Equity and Culturally Competent Care
Harding: Lewis’s Medical-Surgical Nursing, 11th Edition
MULTIPLE CHOICE
1. The nurse is obtaining a health history from a new patient. Which data will be the focus of
patient teaching?
a. Family history
b. Age and genders
c. Dietary fat intake
d. Race and ethnicity
ANS: C
Behaviors are strongly linked to many health care problems. The patient’s fat intake is a
behavior that the patient can change. The other information will be useful as the nurse
develops an individualized plan for improving the patient’s health but will not be the focus of
patient teaching.

2. The nurse works in a clinic located in a community where many of the residents are Hispanic.
Which strategy, if implemented by the nurse, would decrease health care disparities and
promote health equity for this community?
a. Improve public transportation to the clinic.
b. Update equipment and supplies at the clinic.
c. Teach clinic staff about cultural health beliefs.
d. Obtain low-cost medications for clinic patients.
ANS: C
Health care disparities are caused by stereotyping, biases, and prejudice of health care
providers. The nurse can decrease these through staff education. The other strategies may also
be addressed by the nurse but will not directly impact health disparities.

3. What information should the nurse collect when assessing the health status of a community?
a. Air pollution levels
b. Number of healthy food stores
c. Most common causes of death
d. Education level of the individuals
ANS: C
Health status measures of a community include birth and death rates, life expectancy, access
to care, and morbidity and mortality rates related to disease and injury. Although air pollution,
access to health food stores, and education level are factors that affect a community’s health
status, they are not health measures.
