Health care providers have encountered cultural issues in the management of patients for centuries. Culture refers to the beliefs, customs, and arts of a certain group, place, or society . For many years, there has been an emphasis on cultural sensitivity of medical doctors and other health care staff as an approach to ensure good care whenever patients present to a clinic or hospital [2, 3].
Whereas this viewpoint is essential for the implementation of sound medical evaluation and treatment, researchers have determined that other issues can pose a problem with the care of patients. These may include the client’s work hours as well as access to transportation, housing, and child care. Other structures which have a role in this are food distribution networks, immigration policies, and health insurance status [2, 3].
