The aim of the book, more than anything, is to make you think about culture and communication. Although books cannot automatically change practice, it is hoped that through observing and thinking about the ways in which we communicate from a cultural point of view we can also begin to change our practice. 
From the Preface.

We express aspects of our culture everyday. Whenever we communicate with others, we demonstrate our beliefs, values, thoughts, feelings and attitudes - all things that have arisen out of the culture (or cultures), in which we have been born or raised.

Culture, Communication and Nursing will help you to:

  • Understand the important differences between cultures and how these differences can enhance practical nursing.

  • Reflect on your own knowledge and skills about culture and asks you to challenge these using varied, real-life case studies.

  • Look after the whole person by developing cultural sensitivity and culture-specific behaviour.


Culture, Communication and Nursing is aimed at diploma and undergraduate nursing students, although it should also be a useful reference source for those working in health-care, undertaking higher degrees and also those studying for qualifications in other health-care-related disciplines.

Philip Burnard is an author of 38 books on communication, counselling, ethics, writing, computing and education. He is currently Professor of Nursing at Cardiff University and lectures internationally.

Paul Gill is a Registered Nurse and has a background in critical care nursing. In 2006 he was awarded the Royal College of Nursing Marjorie Simpson New Researcher award for his PhD research. He is a Fellow of the Royal Anthropological Institute, London and is currently a Senior Post-Doctoral Research Fellow at the Faculty of Health, Sport and Science, University of Glamorgan.
