Culture in Clinical Care defines and describes culture and its interaction with individual experience and personality in the development of beliefs, values, and actions. Information about cultural beliefs related to health and wellness are explored as they affect intervention strategies. Based on ethnographic methods, mechanisms for culturally sensitive assessment and intervention are considered. The text goes beyond traditional fact-centered approaches, taking the perspective that culture is emergent in individuals as they interact with the physical and social environment. This one-of-a-kind book provides students, as well as healthcare practitioners, chapter objectives, chapter outlines, critical thinking questions, case descriptions for discussion, self-tests and exercises, glossary, comprehensive references, line drawing, and black and white photographs. The organization of the book benefits readers because theory, examples, and practice are interwoven. Students have opportunities to practice what they are learning, and to evaluate their own effectiveness.

The new book includes thirty-five cultural groups along with an introductory chapter on providing culturally appropriate health care.

The people of the world can be seen as a tapestry woven of many different strands. Those strands differ in size, shape, color, intensity, age, and place of origin. All strands are integral to the whole yet each retains an individuality that enriches the beauty of the earth. Health care providers cannot provide good care without assessing both cultural group patterns and individual variation within a cultural group. Providing appropriate, cross-cultural health care is impossible without partnerships based on trusting, respectful, and responsible relationships between health care providers and patients, their families, and communities.
