Self-assessment of intercultural communication skills: a survey of physicians and medical students in Geneva, Switzerland

Published inBMC medical education, vol. 11, 63
Publication date2011
Abstract

Physicians working with multicultural populations need to know how to elicit the patient's understanding of the illness; determine the patient's sociocultural context and identify any issues that might affect care; communicate effectively across patient-provider social and cultural differences; and collaborate effectively with an interpreter. Skills self-assessment can contribute to identifying training needs and monitoring skills development in these areas.
