Culture and its impact on health assessment and interventions is widely recognised as an essential aspect of medical training. While courses are proliferating throughout Africa and the rest of the developing world, there has, until now, been no suitable student textbook or reference text to support such initiatives. The authors of Cultural Issues in Health and Health Care deal with the basic principles of transcultural care and focus on training practitioners to be able to put the principles into practice in their own health settings. Moreover, this book would be a suitable prescribed text for health-related sociology and anthropology courses.          

• Historical perspective
• Metatheoretical and theoretical perspectives on cultural studies
• Cultural competence
• Becoming multiculturally aware
• Anthropological principles underlying health care
• Health care for people of different faiths
• Foundations of intercultural communication
• The anthropology of health
• Principles of cultural assessment
• Multicultural education
• Cultural issues in health-services management
• Transcultural ethics
• Researching cultural issues in health care

Students and educators in health sciences (medicine, nursing, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, social work, etc.) at universities, technikons and nursing colleges in southern Africa.
 
• Outcomes based
• Case studies
• Examples from across southern Africa for assessment and intervention
• Self-evaluation questions
