A1 Paulanka, Betty J., PB F A Davis Company YR 2008 SN 1281828238 9781281828231 AB 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.
