Read article: https://www.nap.edu/resource/10260/disparities_admin.pdf Key principles identifying racial and ethnic health disparities was documented in an influential Institute of Medicine (IOM) report, Unequal Treatment: Confronting Racial and Ethnic Disparities in Health Care (2002). Cultural and language differences were aspects found to negatively affect the quality of care received by racial and ethnic minority groups. The report also included recommendations to eliminate racial and ethnic health disparities while improving the quality of care. Based on your clinical experiences as an NP student and in your nursing practice, has any progress been made in instituting the recommendations to eliminate health disparities? Provide examples from your practice and the article to support your response (1 paragraph).
