Summary note
"The book is based on the authors' combined 40-plus years of work as clinicians and teachers in refugee and immigrant health. It is written with clinicians and students in mind and is thus practical, yet theory based, so it can be used in the field and as a teaching text. The book bridges physical health (highlighting infectious disease risks), mental health, and spiritual issues, while encompassing population-specific information on history of immigration, culture and social relations, communications, religions, pregnancy and childbirth, end-of-life issues, and health screening. It also details health beliefs and practices of over 30 ethnic groups commonly found as refugees or immigrants from more than 40 countries."--BOOK JACKET.
