Using the group you selected, you will discuss cultural and linguistic assessment relating to health care needs, including norms, rituals, food requirements, health benefits, and any religious orientations that may influence patient care. After addressing the specific cultural and linguistic health care needs, discuss the role of the nurse in applying the CLAS standards to patient care in general, followed by specifics for your chosen group.
