In healthcare, communication between patient and healthcare provider is essential. A patient must express symptoms and discomfort to healthcare provider. If patient doesn’t express, healthcare provider such as doctor, nurse, aide, therapist may not be able to provide adequate treatment. A diagnosis is not made by healthcare provider alone. Participation and cooperation of patient is crucial. Therefore, a good communication between patient and healthcare provider can make dramatic difference on success of patent. Usage of interpretation/translation is a good start yet communication barrier is still at impasse due to cultural difference. Culture is complex whole which includes knowledge, belief, art, morals, law, custom, and any other capabilities and habits acquired by man as a member of society. These are based on ethnic heritage, nationality of family origin, age, religion, gender, sexual orientation, disability, or socioeconomic status.
