Abstract/Description

In the current healthcare system, it is important for a nurse to be culturally

sensitive and recognize that cultural effects on the experiences of each individual

that are directly or indirectly related to their health. Patient’s cultural and literary

background have a massive influence on their beliefs and behaviors which leads

to their understanding of the disease process and a better treatment outcome as

a result. Consequently, it is important for the nurses and every healthcare

professional to be sensitive and aware to their patient’s unique language and

culture background, which are key in terms of recognizing the treatment plan

based on their preference. Cultural competence in the healthcare system takes a

very integral part in bringing out the best outcome in patient care. The root cause

of most of cultural communication problems originates from lacking the deeper

level of understanding of patient's culture, values and it’s preferences in the

treatment process.
