Title: Transcultural Nursing: Basic Concepts and Case Studies
Url: http://www.culturediversity.org/cases.htm
Creator: Fernandez, Kathy
Fernandez, Victor
Publisher: culturaldiversity.org
Description: Created by the nonprofit organization Transcultural Nursing, this very useful website covers both basic concepts related to diversity as well as providing an array of case studies designed to help students, nurses and anyone practicing in the health professions better understand cultural diversity. The case studies are nicely designed, divided by general cultural community (Hispanic, Middle Eastern, Deaf, Asian, Afro American and Migrant Worker) with basic information about religion(s) or other demographic information that might relate to that particular group. Following the general information are three or four case studies illustrating specific instances where cultural differences came into play in a nursing or medical situation. The site also has an introductory area, which outlines some basic concepts including defining terms such as, cultural values and ethnocentrism. A page dedicated to the topic of third world nursing offers insight into this type of hands on experience in nursing in diverse communities, and a list of references and related links round out this very useful site.
