Immigration trends in Saskatchewan
- Please answer the following questions:
a. Explain why increased cultural diversity in Saskatchewan BC Canada will affect health care in the province.
b. As you read in the textbook, the mounting evidence from social research indicates that, more and more, “…we find support for the use of a population health perspective to examine the relationship between ethnicity, immigration, and health. Such a perspective recognizes that the socio-demographic, cultural and lifestyle characteristics of individuals and their interactions, rather than “medical care inputs and health behaviours” are the most important predictors of health status and health care utilization over the adult life course” (Strohschein/Bolaria, 2014, pp. 88).
Given this, explain why the population health perspective is an appropriate framework to use in order to try and understand how health care should respond to increasing diversity in Saskatchewan.
