Interprofessional Practice with Diverse Populations: Cases in Point

Auburn House, Jan 1, 2000 - Education - 211 pages
Introduces critical issues that are highlighted by case studies, for example cultural relativism, power, oppression, attribution, and definitions of illness, and treatment. The case studies are presented in chapters that are co-authored by two to six experts representing a diverse range of professional and personal backgrounds. Concepts such as cultural competence, multicultural practice, and ethnosensitivity have taken root in the literature. At the same time, concepts such as cross-disciplinary, transdisciplinary, interdisciplinary, and interprofessional practice have been articulated. Although these two trends coexist in print, the literature in the various helping professions does not address whether and how the issues of client diversity and interprofessional practice can come together in productive and better informed ways. The present book promises to close this gap and offer health care professionals theoretically grounded examples of "best practices." The range of diversity includes Native American, Taiwanese, Portuguese, African-American, Algerian, Irish, South Asian, and gay clients.
