Overview

Prepare your students for the culturally rich and ethically diverse world in which they will practice.

Each brings a personal understanding of the traditions and customs of their societies, providing a unique perspective on the implications for patient care.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Margaret Brackley
This book on transcultural health care in North America argues for respect for differences within the American culture by incorporating traditional practices into ""professional prescriptions and interventions."" The authors propose to introduce a new and evolving conceptual model for learning about culture by providing macro and micro approaches to the study of culture. Additionally, they describe the characteristics of certain ethnocultural groups selected because they exist in large numbers, have new immigration status, are dispersed widely within North America, information about a group is lacking, or they hold minority status. The book targets nursing students in colleges and universities. According to editors, the ethnocultural groups selected for this book are described by authors who were chosen because they are members of the selected culture or have vast experience and knowledge about that culture. Indeed, the chapter authors are well known within the transcultural nursing community. The authors offer educators who adopt this book a disk for use on personal computers or for reproduction of study materials. At the end of each chapter, a case study and study questions are presented. The book also includes a glossary of terms. This is an interesting book. The Purnell Model for Cultural Competence presents a focused way of studying the materials. The authors celebrate diversity without identifying culture as a problem to be overcome in order to deliver Western health care as some other approaches do. Some expected materials arc not included in this book. Kleinman, Eisenberg and Good's Explanatory Model, used widely in transcultural nursing care, is not presented. On theother hand, cultures are represented that are often omitted in other texts. This new textbook appears easy to use and is filled with ways to help students become culturally competent.
