Cultural determinants of patient care

15 January 2023

The book focuses on the problem of cultural barriers in healthcare that arise as a result of globalisation and migration. The authors emphasise the importance of preparing healthcare professionals to work with patients from different cultures and religions, who may have different needs and expectations. They also point out the need to understand the cultural background of the patient and to adapt their approach to their needs. The book draws attention to the problem of linguistic diversity and proposes solutions, such as the development of procedures to normalise the admission of a foreign-language patient, in order to make treatment safer and more effective.

The book "Cultural determinants of patient care" edited by Katarzyna B. Głodowska, Ewa Baum, Rafał Staszewski, Ewa Murawska.
