Overview

In 47 chapters, contributors describe aspects of nursing care for people considered culturally vulnerable, including members of minority groups, the elderly, the abused, the chronically ill, and those disenfranchised by their behaviors. They begin with the concepts behind care for the vulnerable, including their identification, assessment according to their own criteria as well as those of the practitioner, their expectations of social justice, and the cultural competence of both nurse and patient. They follow with theories of nursing in this population, research, practice, teaching and learning, and policy implications. They include examples across cultural and class lines, case studies, and self-assessment tools, focusing on social involvement of nurses within the community as well as in clinical settings.
