With each passing day, the melting pot becomes more diverse, and the healthcare system struggles to effectively bridge the cross-cultural communication gap. Intercultural communication is defined as situated communication between individuals or groups of different linguistic and cultural origins. Culture is the collective programming of the mind that distinguishes the members of one group or category of people from others, and cross-cultural differences play a crucial role in both providing and receiving effective medical treatment.
This resource curation seeks to provide a well-rounded, reliable collection of sources to provide information about the language barrier on intercultural communication in health care.
