Cross-Cultural Training and Teamwork in Healthcare
Organisational cultures and subcultures have played vital roles in the quality care of the healthcare industry in both the public and private forms of medical practice and education, leaving opportunity for the integration of principles focused on cross-cultural teamwork. Cross-Cultural Training and Teamwork in Healthcare explores the complex relationships between patients, physicians, and nurses with different cultural backgrounds. Integrating theoretical and empirical perspectives on medical teamwork, this book assesses the impact of diverse backgrounds among team members on the quality of care they provide so that medical practitioners, decision-makers, and educators can effectively make use of their cultural differences to provide patients with the best possible care.
