Political, Social, and Sociocultural Influences on Women’s Health

Political, Social, and Sociocultural Influences on Women’s Health

As an advanced practice nurse, you must remain current on health issues that commonly impact women such as birth control, abortion, family planning, the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine, and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). Many of these women’s health issues are heavily influenced by political, social, and sociocultural factors. These influences might not only affect a woman’s ability or desire to receive care, but also a provider’s ability or willingness to offer care. How might political, social, and sociocultural factors influence your personal perceptions of these women’s health issues?

To prepare:

  • Review this week’s media presentation, as well as Chapter 1 of the Schuiling and Likis text.
  • Select and research one of the following women’s health issues: birth control, abortion, family planning, human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine, human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) in women, or another issue approved by the course Instructor.
  • Consider the impact of political, social, and sociocultural factors on the women’s health issue you selected.
  • Reflect on how the personal perceptions of providers might influence their ability or willingness to care for women in relation to this issue.
