Nurses, locally and globally, are facing new and complex challenges on account of living in a culturally diverse and dynamic world. This special issue of Contemporary Nurse (the first Australian-based nursing journal to carry a special feature dedicated to transcultural nursing) provides a timely opportunity to reflect on some of these challenges and on the various ways in which nurses might respond effectively to them. This special issue 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 – and must remain at – the heart of nursing research, education, and practice.

What a joy it is to see this occur during this heightened era of transcultural nursing worldwide...in a country that is truly multicultural....with professional nurses to care for the different.

Madeleine M Leininger, PhD RN FAAN FRCNA Founder of Transcultural Nursing

Advances in Contemporary Transcultural Nursing is the first (and only) Australian reader on transcultural nursing in our region. Eighteen articles, case studies and editorials provide a reminder of the moral importance of care as a universal but culturally constructed service at the heart of nursing education and practice.

Ethnocentric expressions of health care may be non-therapeutic and even harmful. A failure to practice culturally informed nursing could result in people receiving 'toxic service' rather than therapeutic care.

Olga Kanitski AM, Foundation Professor of Transcultural Nursing, RMIT University

Grouped into four parts, articles address the impact of globalisation and nursing education, understanding culture and health, and the impact of migration on cardiovascular and mental health. Studies include meeting diversity challenges in Australia, cross cultural; nursing in New Zealand, critical thinking in nurse education in Japan, aged care and self-care in Hong Kong, coronary heart diseases in Indian immigrants and Indigenous communities, comparative mental health in Thailand and methods for co-operative inquiry with Indigenous communities.

Advances in Contemporary Transcultural Nursing is widely used for tertiary nursing courses on society, culture and health and professional development courses to raise cultural competence.
