Achieving Cultural Competency: A Case-Based Approach to Training Health Professionals provides the necessary tools to meet the ever-growing need for culturally competent practitioners and trainees. Twenty-five self-study cases cover a variety of medical topics, including cardiovascular, pulmonary, neurology, oncology, hematology, immunology, and pediatric disorders. Actual scenarios that occurred in clinical settings help the user gain direct insight into the realities of practice today. Cultural factors covered within the cases include cultural diversity plus gender, language, folk beliefs, socioeconomic status, religion, and sexual orientation.
This book is an approved CME-certifying activity to meet physicians’ cultural competency state requirements.
