This session looks at cultural factors which may be important to your patients and describes ways which will help ensure that the care they receive is appropriate.

This session was reviewed by Khyati Bakhai and last updated in December 2021.

Learning objectives

By the end of this session you will be able to:

  • describe your own cultural influences
  • recognise the abundance of cultural differences within groups as well as between them
  • suggest ways of eliciting and working with the customs, beliefs and attitudes of your patients to improve health outcomes

There are many definitions of culture, but most of them refer to the fact that it is acquired and that it affects the way we perceive the world around us and the way in which we interact with it.
