A patients cultural background may have an effect on their behaviors and perceptions toward their health, illness, and medical care. Its important that we avoid looking at these differences as barriers, and instead work to understand them.First, choose a culture that you don’t know a lot about and research 3 cultural differences, such as family structure, celebrations, religious beliefs, etc., that are different from your own that you would like to better understand.Secondly, explain the techniques you can use to improve your communication and rapport with patients who come from the culture you chose to research.
