Nursing & Health Sciences Virtual Issue: Cross Cultural Health Perspectives

Edited by Professor Teresa Stone

Nursing and Health Sciences enjoys submissions from the world over so it was particularly difficult to select articles for this special edition. Cultural competence is more vital in today’s globalised health services; and we hope that these articles trigger you to think about the diversity of health perspectives and practices in a variety of cultural and social settings.
