Cultural background, diet, religious, and health practices, as well as language, can differ widely within a given country or part of a country.-(answer: c. the only assured similarity among people from around the world who come to you for care is the fact that they are your patients and they hope to be treated with respect and with concern for their individual health needs. as a health care practitioner, it is important to have a basic understanding of your patients culturesand to recognize the similarities and differences among people from the same region of the world and the same country. differences in cultures within a region can be pronounced. each patient is the product of many cultural forces. people from the same continent, the same country, the same part of the country, and even the same city, may have major differences in cultural heritage, traditions, and language, as well as differences in socioeconomic status, education, religion, and sexual orientation. it is the combination of all of these factors that make up a persons culture.)
