However, detection of ED patients with al- cohol problems can occur using brief screening tools. This article was developed by members of the SAEM Substance Abuse Task Force, and describes screening tools that have been used successfully to identify at- risk and dependent drinkers. Their bre...

Currently, one of every 13 U.S. residents is foreign born. A 1991 survey of certified nurse-midwives (CNMs) indicated that 51% of the respondents serve immigrant women. Using a case study approach, this article illustrates barriers to health care experienced by foreign-born women and demonstrates how cultural competence increases provider effectiveness in meeting the unique needs of this population. Effective primary care requires understanding the context of the refugee experience and its physi...
