General Topics Covered Throughout the Text
"The text is well suited for a curriculum having global health care as a thread, or it would be a great text for a course on International/global health for nursing, allied health and possibly students enrolled in an international business course with a health emphasis. It is my belief nursing education should prepare our students to think more globally so their practice reflects a broader more culturally sensitive philosophy."
