We live in an age of constantly shifting populations, as immigrants and refugees seek a safe haven from war, famine and poverty. The healthcare of these dispossessed people is now a stark challenge not only in zones of conflict but in those wealthier countries that have offered sanctuary. The book is based on the authors' combined forty-plus years of work as clinicians and teachers in refugee and immigrant health. It is written with clinicians and students in mind and is thus practical, yet theory-based, so it can be used in the field and as a teaching text. It bridges physical health (highlighting infectious disease risks), mental health, and spiritual issues; and encompasses population-specific information on history of immigration, culture and social relations, communications, religions, pregnancy and childbirth, end-of-life issues, and health screening. It also details health beliefs and practices of 30 cultures from more than 40 countries.

Recensione:

"This is an excellent resource. It contains population groups not usually found in other books on similar topics. A total of 31 groups are included from Afghanistan to Vietnam. Two unique topics that are covered in each chapter are history of immigration and end-of- life issues. The other usual areas are covered such as pregnancy and childbirth, communications, religion, health beliefs, social relations, and health problems/screening. The pictures alone are worth the purchase." Doody's Review ServiceG

"...provides useful facts about health care needs of refugees and challenges faced by providers, and raises awareness of cultural differences." - Journal of Emergency Nursing, Christine May
