9780632040421: The Ethnic Health Handbook: A Factfile For Health Care Professionals

Because patterns of disease are known to differ between ethnic groups, it is essential that health-care professionals recognize this fact in order to make effective diagnoses and provide proper treatment. Accordingly, providing culturally appropriate and sensitive health care depends upon reliable information about ethnic minority customs that may influence health. The Ethnic Health Handbook provides such rapidly assimilated information for health professionals working in a variety of settings. For easy reference, each entry is arranged alphabetically, follows a standard format, and is presented in an abbreviated form. Compiled in consultation with ethnic community leaders, health workers and representatives of ethnic and religious organisations, this handbook is an invaluable data source on the customs, demography, religion, refugee circumstances, and health of all the major ethnic groups currently in the UK. As such, it is essential reading for anyone concerned with providing an informed, equitable and caring health service. Finally, a chapter on ethnic monitoring is also included because of its mandatory nature for all UK in-patients.
