The second edition of this popular introductory text explores the many sensitive issues of culture, race and ethnicity as they affect patient care.

Issues covered include: health and illness beliefs, and their relationship to religious beliefs; mental health and culture; women's health in a multicultural society; caring for older people; and death and bereavement.

All chapters have been updated to present the latest theory and practice and new chapters on men's health and cultural care, and migration and asylum seekers have been added, along with updated case studies and reflective exercises to help the reader link theory to practice.

This book is essential reading for all nursing students, as well as midwifery, allied health and health and social care students. It is also a useful reference for qualified nurses, midwives, health care assistants, assistant healthcare practitioners and allied health professionals.
