November 16, 2016 1 Running head: CULTURALLY COMPETENT CARE FOR AMISH 2 Culturally Competent Care for Amish
Health care and cultural competent performance huge roles in communicating
persuasively to patients of different cultural, background ethnic and different faith from
other. Healthcare professional who are giving care should always know or understand the
different cultural and learn the roles they play in the health care professional. Also the
health care giver should know the different culture in the United States that they see in
the health care. As a care giver they should have knowledge about an especial culture
could lead to misunderstanding for both the patient and the care giver. My project would
be focusing the Amish cultural and the how they view the healthcare in the western
medical. The Amish cultural is one of the thousand cultural that lived in the United
States. Because of their different cultural view the caregiver should learn more about
other population cultural differences. The purpose of this cultural report is to give or
provide information about culturally competent care for everyone who is interesting or
planning to be in the medical field.
Those specific questions from this report will help us better understanding Amish
culture and their view regarding to healthcare.

How the Amish View Illness and or/ Chronic Disease Running head: CULTURALLY COMPETENT CARE FOR AMISH 3 According to (Walsh, 2016, September 30). The Amish cultural view illness from
a comprehensive viewpoint. The Amish culture believes that disability is to be
accommodated and they should accept as God?s will. They also believe that as a child of
disability is a great gift of God and they are special. Also, the Amish culture treats the
physical disease different traditional curatives and/or western medicinal consideration
(Walsh, 2016). Another key point is that the Amish culture also, believes that they should
receive health care beneficial but at the same time they should leave everything to God?s
hand because the end of the day God is the ultimate healer and the sin of the human is the
cause of illness. .? (Schub, Smith, 2016, para. 8). Also the publicly acknowledge the
symptoms of physical illness for fear of ? complaining against God.? (Schub, Smith,
2016, para. 8).
What Perceptions of Western Medicine the Amish Culture Have
Accordingly, the Amish culture they believe that before they visited the western
medicine doctors they should do their own treatment which mean they should treated the
way that God?s wanted. The Amish culture use spiritual treatment for the person and they
believe that the reason why the person has those illnesses is sin and they use spiritual
treatment. After that if there was no results they will visit the western health care.
(Purnell, 2009). Another reason way the Amish culture put second the western health care
is that they don?t believe health care would do any better to the person if God?s did not
want that person to feel better in health ways. So they leave everything in the hand of
God?s. ? If it isn?t God?s will, the doctor can?t help,? (Smith 2016a, para. 5).
Why the Amish Have that Perception of Western Medicine Running head: CULTURALLY COMPETENT CARE FOR AMISH 4 The Amish culture does not have a religious prohibition against the modern
technology in the healthcare. But that does not mean they allow all of the healthcare
uses. The reason why the Amish culture has that perception of the western health
care is that langue barrier. Most of the Amish culture sects require that medical
technology be used selectively and community leaders approve the used of any of
modification, pumps, and ventilator. Also, for those automated equipment may be
requiring home care. ? Most Amish may reject the use of premarital genetic testing
as well as prenatal genetic screening,?(Smith, 2016a, para. 22). Are Their Religious Barriers/ Spiritual Support System
Every Amish community has one faith and they belong to that one church. The
church services held every other week on Sunday and all members are accepted to be in.
the Amish community share wide faith promotes a strong, support social network. Also
the community of Amish proved assistance if needed, including emotional, physical and
financial care which make the community to be more close to there self. ? Amish
individuals typically do not make health-related decision in isolation,?(Smith, 2016a,
para. 26). ?Conservative Amish communities rely on their community spiritual leaders
(e.g., bishops, elders) for decisions regarding healthcare issues concerning individual
members and for general health care policies (e.g., receiving vaccinations for
communicable diseases, participation in medical studies), especially if the church is to be
held responsible for healthcare costs,? (Smith, 2016a, para, 26). How Do the Amish View Western Medicine Running head: CULTURALLY COMPETENT CARE FOR AMISH 5 According to (Smith, 2016). The Amish women prefer using home mode
remedies and folk medicine offered by the female relatives and midwives who don?t have
any training background. After consulting the community practitioners such as brauchdoktors, pow-wow doctors, and reflexologist they seek care practitioner of traditional
western medicine. ?The Brauch-doktors use prayer, chants, incantations, charms, amulets,
and hexes,?(Amish, 2016a, para, 27). Also the Pow-wowing are the practice of ?
sympathy curing,? the reflexology also use the foot massage to improve there general
health. Most of the Amish are reluctant to seek care with their practitioner traditional
western medicine because of the lack of consensus among the district bishops in order to
enroll the government health insurance programs. ?The Amish believe that enrolling in
healthcare insurance may be perceived as having lack of faith in God,? (Smith, 2016a,
Who in the Amish Family makes Medical Decisions
The Amish family structure is they all communicate and the father or the oldest
male in the family makes the decisions after consultation with their family members. In
same cases the grandmother is the key decision maker concerning health-related or
reproduction. In other time if the male does not approved the health care he may refuse it
for his wife. When it comes for decision makers for the Amish it always the male and he
makes the decision if they should go on or not. ? Women are accorded high status and
respect in the community,?(Purnell, 2009).
How Does the Patriarchal Medical Care Decision
Maker Create Problems for Access to Western Healthcare Running head: CULTURALLY COMPETENT CARE FOR AMISH 6 Because the majority of medical decision maker is the oldest male in the family
and that can create problem that could be Mainer medical and bring major medical
problem. Also not allowing women to access the medical need would bring major death.
Most of the Amish women may die for premature death and luck of without gating the
medical treatment that they needed in time. An example of this is that a women who may
needed medical healthcare may not get one base of their husband.? Amish women have
been reported to refuse health care if it is not approved by their husbands,? ((Walsh,
2016, September 30). My Recommendation for all Western healthcare provided caring for people
of the Amish faith.
Caring for Amish patient has many facets. First to great a patient of Amish they
should be respectful and shake there hand and look in their eye with smile. Because when
the person is not feeling well they need all the care he/ or she needed. As for caregiver
they should respect the patient faith and their private. Also, ?Amish have an aversion to
photography because they believe it is inappropriate to draw attention to oneself and that
posing for photographs demonstrates pride and vanity,?(Walsh, 2016,September, 30)
advise your Amish patient about taking the photographs before you do. They believe that
it?s tantamount to make grave image. Another awareness is that they should educate their
Amish patients about the potential danger for them and unborn child. Because of the
majority of the Amish women may not have the education to know the danger that may a
curt. Another good example would be the caregiver should be knowledgeable about
Amish culture so that they accurately assess their patient heath education needs. The Running head: CULTURALLY COMPETENT CARE FOR AMISH 7 caregiver should be sensitive to the potential conflict between modern health practices
and the Amish religious, and culture to avoid alienating a patient and other Amish
community. (Smith, 2016b. para, 30).
Becoming a caregiver it?s very important to know the different people that they
would view and also knowledge the type of patients that western society. The reason why
knowledge them self is important is that every patient have different background and
different faith so it?s important that caregiver should be aware. The health giver should
learn the different type of people that they will see. References
