Product Description

Edited by Akram Omeri and Marilyn McFarland

Published: 2008
ISBN: 978-0-9757710-5-1
Pages: xii+212


Nurses are facing new challenges in a culturally diverse world. This issue provides a timely opportunity to reflect on some of these challenges and on the ways in which nurses might respond effectively to them. It also provides a timely reminder of the importance and moral imperatives of the theory and practice of transcultural nursing and its emphasis on care as a universal, but diverse culturally constructed phenomenon, that lies at the heart of nursing research, education, and practice.

Leader and founder of the discipline of Transcultural Nursing, Madeleine Leininger, introduces the contents which report on evidence-based research, leadership and the application of TN principles to inform, improve and advance culture-care practices in diverse nursing and health care practice settings. The issue builds upon existing knowledge for academics, clinicians, researchers and nurse leaders in a true journey of cultural awareness.

Featured in this special issue are 24 research articles, editorials and commentaries, providing the expert opinion and research findings of transcultural nurse specialists, and demonstrating the undivided commitment of transcultural nurse generalists to ongoing research and development of this important topic.

Nursing educators, leaders and present and future students will benefit from the focus of this issue as a further basis for exploring Transcultural Nursing into the future.
