Notes: 
Includes bibliographical references and index. --- Review, Network Summer/Fall 2004: The health of a nation can only be as good as the health of its most vulnerable and stigmatized citizens. While culture, class, ability and religion are known to affect how illness may appear and be understood, sexual orientation has been less well researched or understood as a mediator of health and illness. The authors of this textbook offer health practitioners a comprehensive reference work in order to better treat and serve lesbian, gay and bisexual patients. A chapter has been set aside to deal with special populations within this community, including people from ethno-racial and cultural minorities, Aboriginal people, people with disabilities, people living in rural communities, and transsexual and transgendered individuals.
