Transcultural Concepts in Nursing Care



and online educators, what comes to mind is their deep dedication and devotion to the disci pline and profession of Transcultural Nursing. Through their intellectual astuteness and cre ative actions, they are role models and mentors to students and other leaders who can enlighten and broaden transcultural care knowledge world wide. They are committed to the primary goal of transcultural nursing to facilitate culturally con gruent knowledge and care so that people of the world are understood, and their healthcare needs can be met within the dynamics of their cultures and global cultural understanding. A ninth edi tion of a book attests to the fact that students, faculty, and other practitioners will find within its pages relevant and challenging informa tion and a theory and model to learn about and apply to diverse culture groups, know how to relate to and serve them, conduct research, and facilitate the solving of problems. Today inter professional collaboration and communication are the key to change and effective transcultural care. The authors have captured that essence in their Transcultural Interprofessional Practice (TIP) Theory and Model presented in this work.

I wholeheartedly endorse this new edition. I am most proud to call these authors not only my col leagues but also my friends as they move forward in the evolution of what can be termed authentic transcultural nursing by means of collaboration and interprofessionalism. Nursing students, fac ulty, other healthcare professionals, and practi tioners of every healthcare and anthropological/ sociological discipline will be stimulated by the theory and the content expressed by the authors and the many contributors in this new edition to improve the health of and help people of diverse cultures worldwide.
