This unique resource addresses specific assessment and intervention strategies needed for clients from a variety of cultural backgrounds. Part 1 provides a systematic model of nursing assessment and intervention which takes into account six cultural phenomena: communication, space, social organization, time, environmental control, and biological variations. In Part 2 these six cultural phenomena are systematically applied to the assessment and care of individuals in specific cultures. Since the first edition this book has been praised as a quick reference, user-friendly assessment tool for use with clients in diverse clinical settings.

• Features Giger and Davidhizar's Transcultural Assessment Model, with a full chapter devoted to each of the six aspects of cultural assessment, to help the reader apply this model to any client of any culture.

• Includes an expansion of the spiritual component throughout, with an emphasis on various religions.
• Offers clarification of some of the biological variations for select cultural groups.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Carole Ann Kenner, PhD, RN, FAAN (The College of New Jersey)
Description: This is the fourth edition of a book presenting the foundation for providing culturally sensitive care to individuals and families throughout the lifespan. It does so using the Transcultural Assessment Model, developed by the two editors as the basis for clinical work. The previous edition was published in 1999.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide nurses, both practicing and student, the foundation of culturally appropriate care using the Transcultural Assessment Model that values diversity. The model is adaptable to any diverse population because it is built on exemplars from unique ethnic and diverse cultural groups. These worthy objectives are more than met.
Audience: The audience includes seasoned nurses as well as novices. The information is applicable across disciplines providing care in any population or setting. The editors are internationally known cultural experts who have been developing and disseminating their model of assessment for over 20 years.
Features: The first sections focus on the theory and the six concepts of the Transcultural Assessment Model. They guide the reader through the dimensions of culturally appropriate care. The next section uses the six concepts and applies them to clinical situations bringing the content alive. Tools to assist faculty in teaching the content are found in the book's accompanying Web site. The use of black-and-white illustrations instead of color takes away the impact of the otherwise powerful stories.
Assessment: Although there are transcultural books on the market that address certain aspects of diverse populations, there is no competition for the depth and breadth of this book. It is user-friendly, easy to understand, and is easily translated into practice. This book is a wonderful addition to the library of any health professional's who truly wants to provide appropriate care to diverse populations.
