  • Family roles and responsibilities for ill clients
  • Withdrawal of treatment decisions
  • Death and dying
  • Medication and home remedies/treatments
  • Nutrition and diet
  • Reactions to mental illness
  • Symptom management
  • Racially abusive clients
  • Caring for the older adult
  • Managing culturally diverse work forces
  • Culturally appropriate communication, diagnoses, interventions and standards of care

The Journal of Transcultural Nursing also offers nurses, educators, researchers, and practitioners theoretical approaches and current research findings that have direct implications for the delivery of culturally congruent health care and for the preparation of health care professionals who will provide that care.

A Comprehensive Approach

The Journal of Transcultural Nursing includes intriguing and critical articles on

  • Research, including both qualitative and quantitative methodologies, evaluation, and validity and reliability issues
  • Theory Development, including conceptual models and theories currently used to guide culturally congruent health care.
  • Education, including pedagogy, tools for increasing cultural awareness, integrating transcultural nursing concepts into the academic curricula and staff development programs, and teaching culturally diverse nursing students.
  • Clinical Practice, including practical applications of research findings to clinical practice, such as adapting end-of-life care to the needs of specific ethnic populations, developing a hospital-based website with culture-specific information for both staff and patients, and culture assessment tools.
  • International Department, including collaborative international research models, international consultation, and government and non-government health policy formation
  • Information Resources, including internet resources, book reviews, special transcultural programs, and annotated bibliographies
