Consider the multicultural perspective while reading this line from the chapter: “For many individuals, the medical establishment represents a place where they have little knowledge, no power or authority, or previous difficult experiences.” Read about the U.S. Public Health Service Syphilis Study at Tuskegee at http://www.cdc.gov/tuskegee/timeline.htm/ (Links to an external site.). Then watch the video at McRae Today Show AARP with Jane Pauley (Links to an external site.) .
How is this material related and why is the multicultural perspective so important to case managers?
Optional: Find another example of a possible reason a group of people may be wary of the medical establishment.
