Summary

For undergraduate and graduate courses in patient care and basic health related profession programs, as well as medical, social work, and other health disciplines.

This text is based on the idea of "CulturalCare", which is the concept that promotes health care as culturally sensitive, culturally appropriate, and culturally competent. Stressing that CulturalCare is both content and process, the text explores how this concept is essential in order to meet the complex health care needs of patients and their families and communities. Using a practical and student-friendly approach, the Sixth Edition examines how health care can cross social and cultural boundaries of a patient while assessing that patient's particular social environment as it relates to their health issues.

Rich in pedagogy, the text includes case studies, illustrations, tables and a companion website, material related to demographics, immigration, poverty, and folk traditions are all covered. There is a shrink-wrapped book of assessment tools and guides included.
