"An invaluable work especially for professionals and students in health care, bioethics, humanities, cultural studies, and for the educated lay reader, this volume offers a critical reflection on cultural competence and awareness in health care, an arena where world views and values often collide"--Provided by publisher.
""This book offers a critical reflection on what it means to be 'culturally competent.' At the same time, it is an exercise in thinking out loud, a philosophical prelude to uncover what tends to lie hidden in our encounter with the patient, the Other, particularly the Other who represents a culture and worldview seemingly disparate from our own.""--Provided by publisher.
