The Cultural, Ethnic, and Religious Reference Manual is authored by a nurse intimately aware of the challenges faced by healthcare providers as they attempt to deliver culturally competent care and better understand patient diversity in the face of frenzied schedules. This edition of the Cultural, Ethnic, and Religious Reference Manual maintains the highly successful and sought after conciseness of prior editions while building upon the most recently available healthcare-related data and statistics for each group included. This fourth edition contains over 30 chapters addressing frequently encountered religious, cultural, and ethnic groups. The contents of each chapter provide the reader with a quick overview of relative cultural norms, common health beliefs and practices, kinship factors, etc. while reminding the reader that each individual is unique and diverse in the practices of their culture or religion.
