About this item

This introductory text outlines major cultural variations related to health. It discusses the context of culture, cultural beliefs about health and illness, health disparities, models for cross-cultural health and communication, and approaches to culturally appropriate health promotion programs and evaluation, followed by the history, beliefs, healing traditions and practices, common health problems, and health promotion and program planning for specific cultural groups: Hispanic and Latino Americans, American Indians and Alaskan Natives, African Americans, Asian Americans, and European and Mediterranean Americans. This edition is in full color and has new activities in each chapter, new critical thinking boxes, and a new chapter on how worldviews and communication impact health, the provision of health services, and healthcare decisions. It also has new and expanded topics like Reiki; communicating with those with limited English proficiency; law and ethics in health care; plans to reduce racial and ethnic health disparities; worldview, pregnancy, mental health, and death and dying aspects for each cultural group; and clinical implications for the relationship between religion, spirituality, and health. It has an expanded chapter on nonethnic cultures to include people with disabilities, immigrants and refugees, and the culture of commerce.
