Refugee and Immigrant Health: A Handbook for Health Professionals

Coperta unu
Cambridge University Press, 16 sept. 2004 - 380 pagini
Based on the authors' combined forty-plus years of work as clinicians and teachers in refugee and immigrant health, this handbook is practical, yet theory-based, so it can be used in the field and as a teaching text, wherever immigrants and refugees seek a safe haven from war. Bridging the factors that contribute to physical health by highlighting infectious disease risks, mental health, and spiritual issues, it also details the health beliefs and practices of 30 cultures from more than 40 countries in an age of constantly shifting populations.
