|Title:||Diversity in the context of multicultural communities: implications for nursing and midwifery practice||Contributor(s):||Usher, Kim (author); Mills, Jane (author); West, Roianne (author)||Publication Date:||2014||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/17077||Abstract:||Australia and New Zealand are multicultural societies with a history of colonisation. The health of Indigenous peoples in colonised countries is less than acceptable with life expectancies well below their non-indigenous counterparts. Popular understandings of the concept of culture differ, so before beginning this chapter addressing diversity in multicultural Australia and New Zealand, we ask you, the reader, to take a moment to reflect on your own understanding of 'culture' and how this impacts on the provision of nursing and midwifery care.||Publication Type:||Book Chapter||Source of Publication:||Contexts of Nursing: An introduction, p. 339-353||Publisher:||Elsevier Australia||Place of Publication:||Chatswood, Australia||ISBN:||9780729541527||Field of Research (FOR):||111006 Midwifery||HERDC Category Description:||B3 Chapter in a Revision/New Edition of a Book||Other Links:||http://nla.gov.au/anbd.bib-an51340686||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 311
