"Implementing First Aid Education and Supplies within a Minnesota Amish Community"

Presented by Kristin Glumack


Join us for APASA Café on Friday, December 1st!

When: Friday, December 1, 2023, 12 PM to 1 PM Eastern Time

Where: Via Zoom or teleconference


Abstract: A summary of a Doctor of Nursing Practice student project of working with a small, rural central Minnesota Amish community. Minnesota is home to approximately 5,000 Amish people. Amish have historically been hesitant to accept, adopt, or implement Western healthcare ways, preferring to provide care for family members within their homes. Utilization of complementary or alternative methods for treatment is a high priority. Low health literacy rates, limited science education, lack of insurance, cultural differences, poverty, and rural living make healthcare access and treatment options difficult. This presentation will be a description of my doctoral project which involved developing a first aid kit, creating educational content, and conducting the teaching of skills necessary for implementing the first aid kit items into the local Amish community.

Discussion highlights and emphasis will be placed on:

- Establishing connections

- Development of trust

- Identifying needs

- Collaboration

- Blending of cultures

- Project results

- Follow-up survey results
