With a focus on client-centred care, this book provides an introduction to developing cultural competence in the health care setting. A unique presentation covering both theory and practice, the book begins with a strong foundational model for understanding culture. It then introduces general knowledge on culture which can be provided to a variety of settings, and ends with clinical applications illustrating how to apply knowledge and awareness to a variety of populations. With contributions from twelve leading experts, material is drawn from a wide range of health care settings and has strong practical coverage throughout.

Published Reviews

    The greatest strengths of this book are the authors' willingness to confront the complexity of dealing with culture, difference and racism; the ways they have made the book relevant to the clinical context of health care; the diversity of the examples used; and the pertinence to the Canadian context.
