Cadê o Carinho?: Brazilian Transnationals and the U.S. Healthcare System

 
9783639137323: Cadê o Carinho?: Brazilian Transnationals and the U.S. Healthcare System

What happens when a new cultural minority arrives in the U.S. and seeks healthcare from providers unfamiliar with their culture and unaware of their needs? As a U.S. nurse practitioner herself, the author engages in dialogues with scores of Brazilians about assumptions and expectations of Brazilian patients and those of their American doctors and nurses. With an ear both compassionate and analytical, Dr. Roberts uses the words of her patients and colleagues to paint vivid pictures of conflicts and adaptation about which few U.S. clinicians know to ask. Many voices contribute to this book, which elucidates how misunderstandings, dissatisfaction, humor, and growth play into the experience of being a new immigrant navigating a foreign system and of clinicians trying to provide the best possible care. ------ Maxine L. Margolis, author of An Invisible Minority: Brazilians in New York City says, ¿Cadê O Carinho presents a compelling, multifaceted portrayal of Brazilians in the U.S. and is crucial reading for any healthcare professional offering them care, as well as anyone interested in how culture and health intersect.¿
