The Ethnic Health Handbook Summary


The Ethnic Health Handbook by Ghada Karmi

Patterns of disease are known to differ between ethnic groups. For diagnosis and treatment to be effective it is essential that health care professionals recognize this. The provision of culturally appropriate and sensitive health care depends upon access to reliable information that highlights ethnic minority customs which may influence health. The Ethic Health Handbook provides rapidly assimiable information for health care professionals caring for ethnic minority patients in a variety of settings. For ease of reference each entry is arranged alphabetically and follows a standard format. Entries are presented in an abbreviated form to enable busy practitioners to quickly access the relevant information. Compiled in consultation with ethnic community leaders, health workers and representatives of ethnic and religious organisations, the Handbook provides an invaluable source of data on ethnic demography, religion, refugee health and the health and customs of all the major ethnic groups in Britain today. It is essential reading for everyone concerned with providing an informed, equitable and caring health service. A chapter on ethnic monitoring has been included in recognition of the mandatory status of this procedure for all in-patients in England.
