Now in its Fifth Edition, this text conveys the importance of diverse cultural knowledge for evaluation of patient outcomes, understanding persons in clinical settings, and appropriate responses during the nurse/client interaction. This edition features a new chapter on international nursing by Dr. Paula Herberg, who has worked extensively with Islamic populations. The text addresses the new transcultural nursing challenges brought about by immigration, refugee programs, illegal migration, and the changing healthcare delivery system. New case studies and critical thinking exercises focus on cultural responses to bioterrorism, border health issues, and concerns related to health disparities.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Vicki Ann Moss, DNSc, MS, BSN, RN (University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh)
Description: This book uses a lifespan approach to describe the cultural variations of population groups with the purpose of improving health and nursing care of minorities, the disenfranchised, marginalized, and underrepresented persons of the world.
Purpose: The purpose is "to contribute to the development of theoretically based transcultural nursing knowledge and the advancement of transcultural nursing practice."
Audience: This is basically a book for undergraduate nursing students, but as the authors say, it can be a "stepping stone" for students to pursue graduate education in transcultural nursing.
Features: The four parts cover the historical and theoretical foundations of transcultural nursing care, transcultural nursing across the lifespan, nursing in multicultural healthcare settings, and contemporary challenges. In this fifth edition, much of the new content is evidence-based practice. International nursing with a transcultural nursing perspective is a new addition as well. All chapters begin with key terms and learning objectives and include review questions and learning activities. Many chapters also contain case studies based on the personal practice experiences of the authors as well as current research presented in Evidence-Based Practice boxes.
Assessment: This is an excellent cultural resource for nurses and nursing students. It is easy to read, the chapters a fairly short, and the review questions and critical thinking exercises add to its value. It includes many sidebars with additional information as well as current research on best practices for nurses in dealing with cultural issues such as religion, diversity of the workforce, and transcultural aspects of pain.
Jayalakshmi Jambunathan
This book emphasizes providing culturally congruent nursing care across the life span in clinical and community contexts using the concepts of culture, health, and nursing. The purpose, as indicated by the editors, is to contribute to the development of theoretically based transcultural nursing and the advancement of transcultural nursing practice. It is written for nurses and undergraduate nursing students and other healthcare professionals. The contributors are credible authorities on the subject of transcultural nursing care. Chapters include review questions and learning activities to promote critical thinking. Case studies based on contributors' clinical experiences and research findings are presented to assist with conceptual linkages and to illustrate how concepts are applied in healthcare settings. Tables and boxes with research applications provide good illustrations of chapter content. This book will be very useful for teaching undergraduate nursing students. It will also benefit healthcare professionals from other disciplines by educating them about providing culturally congruent care from a developmental framework. The emphasis of clinical application through the integration of current research throughout the text is very informative. This reviewer would definitely recommend purchase by nursing students, libraries, and other healthcare professionals.
