Overview

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.
