The quality of the relation connecting the health worker to the patient is an important element of the healing process. The cultural distance separating the two often creates an invisible bias producing unnecessary tensions, compromising successful patient-professional cooperation. Minorities and migrants are often cited as obvious examples of cultural otherness; it is less readily recognised that patients coming simply from different social contexts than that of the majority population might also pose problems to the medical system.
The aim of the training is: to increase self-consciousness and self-reflection of the health workers, as well as to give them a few keys to understand better cultural patterns different from theirs, in order to render their work more efficient and less contentious
We suggest the training to: doctors, nurses, psychologists, birth attendants, and other health professionals who work with a diverse public and wish to better understand the intercultural underpinnings of their work
