Health care professionals in the U.S. are likely to count among their patients people from all over the globe. However, if a patient, because of a cultural disconnect can't understand their health care treatment or if information is delivered in a way that inadvertently frightens or offends the patient, how can health care providers fulfill their mission? With this handy reference guide, health care professionals have the cultural information they need to successfully communicate with their patients, respecting their specific cultural needs and expectations related to health care. Find the information you need quickly in this guide, which fits neatly into a lab coat pocket and features tabs to take you to the information you need when you need it--at the patient's bedside, before a patient and family consultation, or whenever you are interacting with patients. This is the guide you'll turn to again and again to improve your patient communication and interaction. Purchase copies for all your staff so that everyone can deliver the highest quality, culturally sensitive care and services.
