Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

The growing cultural diversity of the elderly in the U.S. makes it increasingly important for clinicians to develop an understanding of different ethnic groups. This succinct guide for practitioners includes an opening chapter on the issues and concerns relevant to treating an elderly patient from any minority cultural group, followed by individual chapters on American Indians and Alaska Natives, and Americans of African, Asian Indian, Chinese, Hispanic, Japanese, and Vietnamese descent. Each chapter is written by a clinician or educator who is either from the same background or works extensively with that particular cultural group, and includes discussion of the pertinent beliefs, traditions, and customs, followed by two case studies.
