Working with Patients from Other Cultures: Recent References for the Health Professional.
This bibliography of books and journals has been designed to aid San Diego and Imperial County (California) health care professionals in dealing with patients from three special population groups prevalent in that area: Hispanics, Native Americans, and Pan Asians. The bibliography is divided into four sections, the first of which lists general references. The remaining three sections are devoted to each of the respective groups. The guide concludes with a list of associations and agencies which disseminate further information. Literature pertaining to the Native American Indian population is limited primarily to Southwest Indians. Pan Asians include refugee populations such as Cambodians, Vietnamese, and Pacific Islanders. According to a brief introduction, the guide is highly selective and includes references that are easy to locate or order. References are limited, for the most part, to the past ten years, although some classic texts with earlier imprints are included. The most pertinent references are included at the end of each section as further readings for those who want a more comprehensive review of the literature. (KH)
