Editorial Reviews


"A strength of the book is its attention to the abuse of immigrants, which highlights cultural issues to which clinicians must be sensitive during the acute medical care encounter, such as language discordances, immigration status, legal status, and differences in cultural practices. Examples are provided of culturally based practices that can interfere with communication and patient care, such as restrictions related to direct eye contact or diet. There are likewise interesting discussions about trafficking and torture, including contemporary issues such as the influence of globalization and cultural values on human trafficking and the role of medical and psychological professionals in the treatment and maltreatment of detainees...In summary, Emergency Care of the Abused is an easy-to-read reference text about how to recognize and provide immediate medical treatment for different types of abuse. To our knowledge, it is the first of its kind to address the breadth of abuse issues that general practitioners, emergency medicine physicians, pediatricians, and others may encounter in their clinical practice."
--Journal of the American Medical Association
