Our cultural competency text is back with a recently published second edition of Cultural Competencies for Nurses: Impact on Health and Illness by Linda Dayer-Berenson. By compiling the history and theory behind cultural competency in nursing and health care, it offers key information regarding health beliefs and the impact of culture on health and illness.
Ideal for courses that emphasize health promotion and disease prevention, the text examines:
- Predominant cultural competency nursing theories
- Impact of diversity on health disparities
- Health beliefs of several minority groups
- Case studies to enhance student learning
