Summary

Summary

This practical, readable text integrates nursing theory with the practice of transcultural nursing. It describes how cultural differences in lifestyle, habits, beliefs, life processes (such as childbirth and aging), and responses to clinical problems (like chronic illness or pain) must be considered in any nurse/client interaction. Readers learn how to view every client as an individual. New in this edition: Culturally appropriate interventions; Newly formatted research application boxes; A new chapter on Ethics & Culture: Contemporary Challenges; A new chapter on Cultural Diversity in the Healthcare Workforce; New pedagogy, including Chapter Objectives, Key Terms, Learning Activities to Promote Critical Thinking, End of Chapter Review Questions; and Numerous new Research Boxes that apply research to clinical practice.
