Review:

"A must-read book for any healthcare professional. . . . It should be in every hospital library."--Caregiver Journal



"An important addition to any hospital library or reading room."--Disabilities Studies Quarterly



"This 296-page text contains over 200 case studies that highlight important concepts from the fields of cultural diversity and medical anthropology. The studies illustrate cross-cultural misunderstandings and ways to provide culturally competent health care. Chapters cover a diverse range of topics, including birth, end of life, traditional medicine, mental health, pain, religion, and multicultural staff issues. The newly updated Caring for Patients from Different Cultures is even more comprehensive than the first two editions."--Diversity: Allied Health Careers



"A useful resource not only for practitioners and medical anthropologists but for professors of nursing, social work, and cultural psychology. Her reader-friendly book . . . will be a staple of medical anthropology seminars."--Anthropology of Consciousness



"An excellent book for those interested in providing culturally responsive and effective care to our nation's increasingly diverse population"--Dr. Robert Like, Robert Wood Johnson Medical School
