About the Authors
  • Based on the authors' combined forty-plus years of work as clinicians and teachers in refugee and immigrant health, this handbook is practical, yet theory-based, so it can be used in the field and as a teaching text, wherever immigrants and refugees seek a safe haven from war. Bridging the factors that contribute to physical health by highlighting infectious disease risks, mental health, and spiritual issues, it also details the health beliefs and practices of 30 cultures from more than 40 countries in an age of constantly shifting populations.

    • Focused on cultural competence
    • Balances theory and clinical application of theory
    • Population-specific information on 30 cultures and broad background issues on immigrants and refugees

    Reviews & endorsements

    "This is an excellent resource. It contains population groups not usually found in other books on similar topics. A total of 31 groups are included from Afghanistan to Vietnam. Two unique topics that are covered in each chapter are history of immigration and end-of- life issues. The other usual areas are covered such as pregnancy and childbirth, communications, religion, health beliefs, social relations, and health problems/screening. The pictures alone are worth the purchase." Doody's Review ServiceG

    "...provides useful facts about health care needs of refugees and challenges faced by providers, and raises awareness of cultural differences." - Journal of Emergency Nursing, Christine May
