Summary
The provision of culturally relevant nursing care to multicultural clienteles is a major challenge that nurses have to face as they look towards and beyond the year 2000. Not only may both client and nurse be from a cultural minority group, and not from the dominate culture of a given country, but each may be from a different cultural minority. It follows that in order to avoid situations where cultural misunderstanding and conflict might mar their relationships with patients and clients, nurses need to become skilled at bridging cultural barriers and adept at discovering cultural information that is relevant to their clients health. Intended to help nurses provide trans-cultural care in intercultural situations, this book provides an overview of the multicultural context within which nurses in the UK and elsewhere currently practice a consideration of culture as a concept intrinsic to both health and nursing.--Back cover
