Health-seeking Behavior In Ethnic Populations
2007 0-7734-5842-5
This book presents articles that explore help-seeking behavior within various social and cultural contexts. Critical to this book is the bridging of two concepts that have traditionally appeared in disparate places within the published health arena, i.e., ethnicity and health-seeking behavior. This book brings these concepts together to emphasize their impact on understanding the cultural and social influences of how individuals respond to ill health.
