This is an exceptional contribution to the advancement of caring as the centerpiece of culturally sensitive nursing practice.
Ray included a citation at the beginning of Chapter 6 that reasonated with me "Deep within us when the noise of other appetites is stilled, there is a drive to know, to understand, to see why...." I found my drive to know to understand etc was restimulated. Not only does this book provide insights into the cultures of many different ethnic group Ray has also included organizational culture and caring for which she is justly well known.Read more ›
If you are looking for an easy "handbook," a procedure manual, about how to provide care to patients of diverse cultures, you will probably be disappointed in this book. It is SO MUCH MORE than that, though it is that too.
Some of the words that come to mind when I think of this book, and its effect on me, are opening, inspiring, spiritual, illuminating, transformative, transcendent. Also within this book are sound principles and exercises for assuring excellence in patient assessment, care planning, interventions and evaluation of patients of diverse ethnic, religious, occupational, and other cultural groups. A clinician who studies with this book will provide culturally comfortable care to his/her patients and will develop as a nurse and a person.
