The Latino Patient : A Cultural Guide for Health Care Providers Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


By 2030 Latinos will comprise roughly 20 percent of the population of the United States.

Growing numbers of health professionals are realizing the importance of understanding Latino cultural values as they impact the clinical encounter.

Such knowledge can enhance their ability to communicate with and treat Latina patients effectively and respectfully.

The Latino Patient provides an in-depth exploration of Latino diversity, relevant cultural values, health status, beliefs, and practices; and effective communication strategies.

The author has developed an original, practice-oriented model that leads the reader from greeting the patient to ultimately negotiating treatment.

The book is hands-on and provides numerous vignettes gleaned from the author's experience.

The Latino Patient should be high-priority reading for physicians, nurses, physician's assistants, therapists, clinical psychologists, social workers and other clinicians.
