9780812223118: Caring for Patients from Different Cultures

Healthcare providers in the American medical system may find that patients from different cultures bring unfamiliar expectations, anxieties, and needs into the examination room. To provide optimal care for all patients, it is important to see differences from the patient's perspective and to work with patients from a range of demographics. Caring for Patients from Different Cultures has been a vital resource for nurses and physicians for more than twenty years, offering hundreds of case studies that illustrate crosscultural conflicts or misunderstandings as well as examples of culturally competent health care.

Now in its fifth edition, Caring for Patients from Different Cultures covers a wide range of topics, including birth, end of life, communication, traditional medicine, mental health, pain, religion, and multicultural staff challenges. This edition includes more than sixty new cases with an expanded appendix, introduces a new chapter on improving adherence, and updates the concluding chapter with examples of changes various hospitals have made to accommodate cultural differences. Grounded in concepts from the fields of cultural diversity and medical anthropology, Caring for Patients from Different Cultures provides healthcare workers with a frame of reference for understanding cultural differences and sound alternatives for providing the best possible care to multicultural communities.

About the Author:

Geri-Ann Galanti is a medical anthropologist and Assistant Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at the David Geffen School of Medicine at the University of California, Los Angeles, where she teaches in the Doctoring program.

Review:

Praise for earlier editions:



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



"Large urban hospitals are chaotic places, and cultural misunderstandings do not enhance the care given in them. Galanti not only reports these cases but offers insightful ways of handling the problems they illustrate."—American Anthropologist



"An excellent book to hand to medical colleagues who understand little of cultural sensitivity (and claim they have little time to learn), and it would be an important addition to any hospital library or reading room."—Disabilities Studies Quarterly
