Sample Answer

  1. Complaints of edema of the scrotum, urinary retention, and hematuria may indicate Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) — It is an enlargement or hypertrophy of the prostate (sometimes called hypertrophy of the prostate). It is a common condition as men get older, usually, over 40 years of age. The patient exhibits urinary symptoms such as urinary retention due to the enlargement of the prostate gland. This enlargement gradually compresses the urethra, eventually leading to partial or complete obstruction. causing blockage of the flow of urine out of the bladder. Hematuria is actually common in patients with untreated BPH due to hypervascularity of the prostate in which blood vessels are easily disrupted and since the prostate is directly involved in the urinary tract and any leakage of blood-related to this enlargement would be expelled through the urethra.
  2. In order to effectively provide multidimensional care, it is important to build trust and rapport with the patient first. Help create an environment where the patient can feel secure and comfortable to relate and communicate. Since the patient speaks limited English, it is important that this language barrier be addressed as well to effectively provide quality care and meet his overall needs.

(1) Three potential barriers to anticipate when providing care to the patient include:

  • Language barrier. – The patient doesn’t speak the same language. Thus, providing quality medical care, making the patient feel comfortable, and effectively communicating can be challenging.
  • Different culture. – Healthcare providers who are unacquainted with a certain cultural tradition surrounding medical care may have a hard time connecting with the patient. Without the patient’s trust, it is difficult to obtain information that can help provide better care.
  • Financial limitation. – The patient states he has been having problems for a while, delayed seeing the doctor because of his work schedule and limited money. This financial limitation may hinder the ability of the patient to afford the out-of-pocket costs of care.

(2) Example of how to overcome each of the three barriers are:

  • Language barrier – The language barrier must be broken in some way. One way is to find a qualified translator. This helps a patient feel comfortable enough to share essential information. This ensures appropriate and effective diagnosis and eliminates possible errors in communication.
  • Different culture – The best way to provide sensitive care to patients with a different culture is to ask the patient if there are any cultural or religious practices or beliefs that you need to know about in order to respect and support their needs.
  • Financial limitation – When the patient’s finances are limited to optimize their health, you can refer the patient to appropriate financial support through charitable institutions or social and health services.
