This revised and expanded edition of the Cultural and Religious Sensitivity Pocket Guide includes new content that focuses on the importance of awareness of not only a patient’s cultural background but also his or her religious beliefs to provide patient-centered health care. The Pocket Guide continues to offer health care professionals the information they need to successfully communicate with their patients, while also respecting their specific cultural and religious 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-centered care. Purchase copies for all your staff so that everyone can deliver the highest quality, culturally and spiritually sensitive care and services.
