Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In comprehensive and clear terms, this handbook contains strategies to help physicians better understand and treat their minority patients. This vital tool presents methods with which physicians can gain better compliance among minority patients, make more accurate diagnoses and medication prescriptions, and understand the role of family in different cultures. Emphasizing that African American, Hispanic, and Asian American communities all have different key cultural attributes, the discussion addresses minority medical issues such as depression, drug dependency, psychotherapy, and psychopharmacology. Written by physicians of three different minority groups, this guide speaks on a personal level to all readers.
