This timely volume illuminates the complexities of multicultural relations in health care and demystifies the many cultural influences on health and health care to achieve its ultimate goal: to help people get the most they can out of health care and facilitate the promotion of public health. The essential companion for health communication and multicultural communication courses, Effective Communication in Multicultural Health Care Settings is also an invaluable resource for anyone working within or utilizing the health care system.
