Abstract:

This title prepares students for the culturally rich and ethically diverse world in which they will practice. Noted researchers, educators, and clinicians, from a wealth of backgrounds, use the Purnell twelve-step model to examine more than 30 population groups from a health care perspective. Each brings a personal understanding of the traditions and customs of their societies, providing a unique perspective on the implications for patient care.Multiple vignettes in each culture-based chapter clearly illustrate situations and issues across the nursing continuum. Summaries of the chapters on 18 additional cultures online at DavisPlus appear in one-page abstracts in the Appendix. This title features: more student learning resources online at DavisPlus, including all of the Case Studies from the 2nd Edition; and, more teaching tools for instructors online at DavisPlus, including a test bank and classroom assignments for each chapter.It uses the Purnell twelve-step model to organize the discussion of each cultural group, looking at the following factors: inhabited localities, topography, and overview; communications; family roles and organization; workforce issues; biocultural ecology; high-risk behaviors; nutrition; pregnancy and childbearing practices; death rituals; spirituality; health-care practices; and, health-care practitioners.
