Problem-Specific Data

Different models can be applied in providing culturally responsive care to Filipino Americans.

Panos and Panos (2000) developed a culturally sensitive assessment process that focuses on several domains:

  • • Physician awareness of his or her own cultural identity
  • • Identification of patient’s cultural orientation, belief system, level of acculturation and language preference
  • • Assessing patient’s stress and adaptive coping and functioning
  • • Determining patient’s family relationships and support system
  • • Assessing patient’s views on and concepts of health and illness
