    Laura Maria Pigozzi ; foreword by Teddie M. Potter.
    Summary: "This concise and instructive guide outlines the specific challenges faced by the Latino population in US health care, including language barriers, unfamiliarity with the medical system, lack of insurance, access issues, monetary factors, and most importantly the fears surrounding undocumented immigrants. It shows how health care professionals and chaplains can support and care for this population in a way that acknowledges and understands the distinct characteristics of Latino culture. It offers advice on sensitives within this culture, such as health disparities, the importance of the family, and spirituality and religion in Latino culture. This inclusive guide improves cultural competency among non-Latino care staff and offers case studies and practical tips to input straight into practice"-- Provided by publisher.
