Build students' confidence when relating to different cultures in a health care environment. This concise, easy-to-read handbook tackles an often awkward subject in a direct, non-intimidating style. Students will explore all of the issues they need to be sensitive to, including cultural variations regarding personal space, dietary preferences, communication, symptom management, activities of daily living, and religious and health practices. The book includes two new chapters - Hmong Heritage and Somalian Heritage; two new sections in each heritage chapter; a Workforce Issues and a Health Conditions table that highlight commonly occurring health conditions and causes; and two bonus chapters online at DavisPlus. It discusses the 12 domains of Culturally Competent Care and examines how they apply to all ethnic groups; highlights specific instructions, guidelines, tips, warnings, intervention strategies and approaches; and, includes a language translator.
