As the assigned readings this week examined, there can be differences in beliefs and reactions to pain based on ethnic, cultural, and gender factors. In the journal for this week, discuss what you learned that was new information on this topic. Specifically, analyze different cultural, ethnic, or gender disparities in pain management. What strategies could you employ to assess pain in clients? Reflect on ways your own clinical practice may change as a result of the cultural factors examined. How would an effective, culturally relevant pain assessment impact collaboration across the continuum of care, and ultimately enhance client care?
