Transcultural Nursing: Assessment and Intervention / Edition 2by Joyce Newman Giger, Ruth Elaine Davidhizar
Pub. Date: 01/28/1995
Publisher: Elsevier Health Sciences
This volume on transcultural nursing, edited by Giger and Davidhizar, addresses aspects of that agenda by elaborating in great detail on what constitutes culturally appropriate care. In proposing a framework for assessment that focuses on six key cultural phenomena thought to shape care--communication, space, social organization, time, environmental control, and biological variations--the authors provide students and practitioners with a template for systematically exploring how caregivers' responses, recipients of care, contexts of care, and goals of care may vary, given the cultural diversity in the United States.
