This authoritative, easy-to-use assessment resource will help students identify the six key cultural phenomena used in caring for clients from different backgrounds (communication, space, social organization, time, environmental control, and biological variations), and show them how to apply these phenomena to individuals from different cultures to meet client expectations for the delivery of safe care.

  • UNIQUE! Sample care plans demonstrate how to apply principles to specific client needs.
