MacLachlan, Malcolm

SUMMARY

Most health professionals now practice in multicultural societies. The influence of culture on illness, health and rehabilitation is therefore very important. Culture and Health considers the practical implications of working with people from different cultures. It takes an explicitly critical perspective to explore the many fascinating interplays between culture and health, situating them within the broader social contexts in which they arise. Written in an engaging and accessible style, this second edition has been extensively revised and updated, and now includes a chapter on Global Health. It contains many helpful case studies and each chapter ends with guidelines for professional practice. Retaining a strong focus on the clinician's perspective, Culture and Health is recommended for both students and qualified practitioners alike. It is essential reading for practising professionals and students of psychology, medicine, nursing, social work, occupational therapy and physiotherapy. It is also a valuable resource for health service managers and planners. From reviews of the first edition: "MacLachlan is at his most interesting when recounting tales of cultural diversity" -British Medical Journal "...health workers have a great deal to learn from this volume...of great value and interest are the many illustrations of health related cultural phenomena..." -British Journal of Health PsychologyMacLachlan, Malcolm is the author of 'Culture And Health A Critical Perspective Towards Global Health', published 2006 under ISBN 9780470847367 and ISBN 0470847360.
