HS 403 - Cultural Perspect / Healthcare

Unit(s): 3

This course is designed to explore multicultural models of health, illness, and treatments or therapies to deepen the students’ understanding of the scientific, sociocultural, philosophical, psychological, and spiritual foundations of various unconventional healing systems and their approaches to prevention, health promotion, healing, and maintenance of well-being. These multicultural or alternative approaches to healthcare and to modern conventional medicine are seen as complementary to the biomedical model as they blend body/mind/spirit, science, tradition, and cross-cultural avenues of diagnosis, treatment, and acceptance of healthcare. The impact of cultural values and ethnicity on understanding health and illness, and the utilization of healthcare services will be explored. Concepts and definitions of culture, ethnicity, traditional health beliefs, and health and illness will be discussed.
