1. Helen Kelly: Her Life

Rebecca Macfie

Awa Press, 2021

Helen Kelly was the first female head of the country’s trade union movement, but she was also much more: a visionary who believed that all workers, whether in a union or not, deserved to be given a fair go; a fighter from a deeply communist family who never gave up the struggle; a strategist and orator who invoked strong loyalty; a woman who could stir fierce emotions.

2. Last words: Approaches to death in New Zealand’s cultures and faiths

Compiled by Margot Schwass

Bridget Williams Books, 2005

Last Words is a short book about ways of acknowledging death in the different cultures and religions currently in New Zealand. While it is designed for use by people working with the dying and the bereaved, the book is also intended for general readers - the New Zealand public. The book includes sections on: different cultures and faiths; Maori perspectives; facing death; and understanding grief.

3. The politics of euthanasia: A nursing response

Edited by Dr Megan-Jane Johnstone

Royal College of Nursing, Australia, 1996

This book aims to assist readers on the complex range of ethical, legal, social, cultural and clinical issues associated with legalising active voluntary euthanasia and assisted suicide.

4. When chicken soup isn’t enough: Stories of nurses standing up for themselves, their patients, and their profession

Edited by Suzanne Gordon

Cornell University Press, 2010

The reassuring bromides of "chicken soup for the soul" provide little solace for nurses and the people they serve in real-life hospitals, nursing homes, schools of nursing, and other settings. In the minefield of modern health care, there are myriad obstacles to quality patient care including work overload, inadequate funds for nursing education and research, and poor communication between and within the professions, to name only a few.

Nhi-Ha Trinh., Aava Bushra Jahan & Justin A. Chen

Psychiatric Clinics of North America. 2021, 44(2), 149-157

Limitations of knowledge-based cultural competence initiatives have resulted in a shift toward attitude- and behavior-based “cultural humility.” Cultural humility, the ability to maintain an interpersonal stance that is open in relation to aspects of cultural identity that are most important to the patient, expands on cultural competence, which is essential to improving patient care in mental health care settings.

11. How much can our universities do in the development of cultural intelligence? A cross-sectional study among health care students
