Create a PowerPoint presentation with narration OR a brief video in which you address the following questions:


1.   In terms of communicating with patients of different cultures, what did the health professionals in the video clips do well?


2.   To what extent do you think cultural beliefs, values, and traditions may impact health education efforts? Provide examples of negative and positive impacts that apply to the case studies from the video.


3.   Based on the video, what would you suggest to health professionals who want to improve their cross-cultural communication skills with clients or patients?
