A new edition of my Cultural Sensitivity booklet is available from Joint Commission Resources.
I've posted a new link to a short documentary video featuring Brian Jordon, MD (one of my former medical students, now Chief Pediatrics Resident, University of Michigan Health System) working in the Peruvian Amazon with a traditional shaman. The link can be found on the "Field Reports" page and is entitled, "Where Western and Traditional Medicine Meet." Or you can access it directly here.
