Topic: Vulnerable Population and Self Awareness
Ponder about the following statement: All people have biases; self-awareness is the key to understanding how these biases affect the delivery of health care to individuals, families, and populations.
Select a vulnerable population as the focus of your paper. The population can be from any season and involve any of the characters.

•Describe the population’s demographics based on research of professional literature and websites including local, state, or national levels.
•Describe your personal awareness of the population before studying the demographics. Examples are attitudes, biases, and stereotypes.
•State the effect of research on personal attitudes after gathering knowledge.
•Include how knowledge might affect health care delivery.
•Describe the situation the character is in, and how you feel it should be dealt with based on the knowledge you have gathered about the population.
•Use self-reflection to evaluate your perceptions before and after learning about the population.
