Good Notices for our Medical Manual on Religio-Cultural Competence
On January 4, 2012, the Yale Journal for Humanities in Medicine posted a positive review, by Dr. Howard Spiro, MD, of the Medical Manual on Religio-Cultural Competency: A Comprehensive Resource for Providing Quality Care in a Diverse Health Care Setting, and published by EmblemHealth in partnership with the Tanenbaum Center for Interreligious Understanding. From the review:
"This very useful book will prove a great help in the office of medical caretakers who practice where diversity has become the rule. Given the surprisingly ubiquitous location of many immigrants, a copy will probably be well-thumbed almost anywhere. The discussions in this 228 page manual run the gamut from Judaism and Christianity to Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism, Sikhism, Shinto, traditional Chinese, American Indian and Alaskan native, and Afro-Caribbean traditions."
New York has one of the most diverse populations in the country. This book may help you care for this diversity. Obtain a free copy of this valuable manual for your practice.
