Promotes an awareness of the complexities and dimensions involved in caring for people from diverse cultural backgrounds
The ebook Spector’s Cultural Diversity in Health and Wellness, 9th edition, (PDF) examines the differences existing within North America by probing the consumers, health care system, and examples of traditional health beliefs and practices among selected populations. An essential for any health-care professional, this ebook sets the standard for cultural perspectives and more importantly “Health” — the balance of the person, both within one’s being — mental, physical, and spiritual — and in the outside world — communal, natural, and metaphysical. (Terms such as “Health” are written this way to emphasize their holistic meaning.) An emphasis on the influences of recent political, social, and demographic changes helps to explore the issues and perceptions of health and illness today, while introductory and capstone chapters help place material within perspective.
