Ya, Ya/Yes, Ye: A Play Concerning an Encounter Between Vietnamese Culture and Western Medicine
MetadataShow full item record
Not until the 1980s did the mainstream medical community began to seriously study the field of intercultural health communications. Even today, few substantial works exist regarding this area, although interest and research are increasing. As the United States faces a future where society requires multicultural skills, the health community will need to address cross-cultural issues. Thus, my research project, "Ya, Ya/Yes, Yes: A Play Concerning an Encounter Between Vietnamese Culture and Western Medicine," is an one-act drama that presents the interactions of one family and a medical establishment. This play addresses how traditional Vietnamese medical beliefs compare with the medical beliefs forming the basis for Western practices, while emphasizing multiple layers of interplay between and within the Vietnamese family and the hospital.
