People's experiences of health and illness vary widely and are affected by factors such as age, gender, education, socioeconomic status and culture. Additional factors such as language, culture and pre- and post-migration experience affect people from culturally diverse backgrounds. Individual patients are their own cultural expert; no resource can be comprehensive enough to give the health practitioner better information than asking the patient.
