Synopsis:

Anthropology of Nursing in Healthcare Practice aims to introduce nurses and other healthcare professionals to how anthropology can help them understand nursing as a profession and as a culture. Drawing on key anthropological concepts, the book facilitates the understanding and critical consideration of nursing practice in order to produce better outcomes for service users.

Considering the context in which nurses work, the book argues that in order for nurses to optimise their roles as deliverers of patient care they must engage with the realities of the cultural understanding of the patient as well as the multi-professional environment in which most nurses operate.

The only book currently in the field on anthropology of nursing, this book will be valuable for higher level nursing students, as well as students on medical anthropology courses, nursing curriculum developers, and researchers of anthropology who are interested in learning more about its application to nursing and healthcare.
