Informal care provided by family members is central to current health and social care policy. Caregiving can be seen as a point where macro- and micro-level processes meet: it simultaneously concerns the organization of welfare states and the everyday lives of the millions of people giving and receiving informal care. This makes it important to understand how the carer role is conceptualized and performed by those occupying it. Care and Culture contributes to the sociology of caregiving by giving voice to mental health carers from a great variety of backgrounds and by placing personal experiences centre stage in its analysis. It addresses a number of questions: How do cultural notions of kinship, family and connectedness shape carers’ motivations to care? What does caring for someone with a mental illness involve and how does it affect the caregiver? In what ways should carers be supported? How are their needs defined? Why is there a gap between how carers view their contribution and its recognition in policy and practice? How does a lack of recognition affect those experiencing it? Drawing on practice-oriented cognitive sociology, the book shows that, in order to understand caregiving, its personal, social and cultural dimensions must be considered. It presents a new model for understanding caregivers’ care relations to the person who is unwell, to health professionals and to the state. Perceiving these three relations as relying on differing reciprocal arrangements with different moral implications, new light is shed on issues such as the caregiving burden and the commodification of care.

As health care reform increasingly emphasizes preventative care and health promotion it is becoming increasingly important for individuals to attain and maintain good health. In Self-Care Nursing in a Multicultural Context, authors Juliene Lipson and Nancy Steiger seek to provide nurses and other health care professionals with the tools necessary to teach clients how to think through and decide how to take care of themselves and when to seek professional care, whether in health or in chronic or acute illness. This informative volume intersects two important issues in nursing--self-care and culturally component care. It proceeds from the premise that self-care is a powerful philosophical, biological, and psychological basis for nursing practice in a variety of settings. Cultural issues are stressed throughout the volume, including a section on cross-cultural communication and cultural influences on learning styles. The book is divided into four sections: the historical and theoretical aspects of self-care; the components of health such as nutrition, activity, and stress management; and the impact of self-care in light of health care reform, changing health care settings, and the concept of health communities. Health care professionals as well as students at both the undergraduate and graduate levels will find the volume imminently practical and relevant to their work.

Culture, diversity and cultural care have become important concepts for nurses professionals. However, little is known about how nursing students come to understand these complex concepts. The purpose of this study was to explore what nursing students learn and understand about diversity, culture and cultural encounters from a nursing education perspective. A qualitative approach utilizing the focused ethnography method guided this research study. The study population was first and fourth year undergraduate nursing students enrolled in a Western Canadian university. Findings revealed that the majority of first and fourth year students supported expanded essentialist views of culture. Although students demonstrated increased knowledge of nursing practice, the overall understanding of culture care changed very little between first and fourth year students. This study may be an important step to help nurses improve their understanding of culture, diversity and cultural care. Recommendations are provided for students, educators, program leaders and researchers.
