Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Transcultural Concepts in Nursing Care helps nurses strive in different clinical contexts using theory-based research findings and principles. It advances the use of transcultural knowledge in nursing practice and develops cultural competence in the care of individuals and groups. Guiding professionals to practice effectively and appropriately with diverse cultures, the authors have based the content on culturally based practices and transcultural concepts, principles, and research in many areas of nursing.

 

This edition encourages readers to consider cultural context when providing care. It references historical developments in transcultural nursing and illustrates important concepts, principles, and new research findings to promote and sustain culturally competent care. Incorporated in the text are comparative culture care practices in community and clinical settings using ethical values and research findings based on contextual data. This text offers the knowledge to provide culturally competent and contextually meaningful care for all clients, including individuals, groups, families, communities, and institutions.

Synopsis:

This text conveys the importance of diverse cultural knowledge for evaluation of patient outcomes, understanding persons in clinical settings, and appropriate responses during the nurse/client interaction. Transcultural Nursing Concepts, Sixth Edition, addresses the new transcultural nursing challenges brought about by immigration, refugee programs, illegal migration, and the changing healthcare delivery system. New case studies and critical thinking exercises focus on cultural responses to bioterrorism, border health issues, and concerns related to health disparities.

Synopsis:

Now in its Fourth Edition, this transcultural nursing text conveys the importance of diverse cultural knowledge for the evaluation of patient outcomes, understanding persons in clinical settings and appropriate responses to clinical situations during the nurse/client interaction. Detailed theory is discussed and each chapter contains awareness exercises to ensure comprehension of the nursing role as trusted health care providers. Coverage includes cultural variation in lifestyle, communication and beliefs. New to this edition is a two-color design; revised content on assessment and applications of concepts; a new chapter on culturally appropriate interventions; and, more case studies, research studies and clinical vignettes.
