Summary

Culture & Clinical Care is an updated, revised, and expanded edition of the best-seller, Culture & Nursing Care, winner of a Book of the Year Award from the American Journal of Nursing. The new book includes thirty-five cultural groups along with an introductory chapter on providing culturally appropriate health care.

Organized alphabetically, chapters range from Afghans to (Former) Yugoslavians, and are intended to help clinicians assess cultural group patterns and to acknowledge individual variation within a cultural group. In a clear, reader-friendly format, each chapter addresses issues related to health and illness, cultural/ethnic identity, communication, spiritual/religious orientation, family relationships, food practices, activities of daily living, developmental and sexual issues, birth and death rituals, symptom management, and other topics. Nearly all of the 55 contributors are members of the cultural group they write about in their respective chapters.

Useful for health care professionals in a variety of settings, the comprehensive book provides guidelines to alert and assist clinicians to potential factors they should consider to provide good care.
