Title

Culturally sensitive health care services for Chinese people in Britain

Language

English

Abstract

©, Copyright © Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.This article aims to examine the challenges of developing culturally sensitive health care services for Chinese people in Britain. It argues that Chinese people have heterogeneous backgrounds and migration experiences. However, they share a common cultural heritage and are still influenced by traditional beliefs to various extents, especially in their understanding and handling of health issues. Therefore, in providing culturally sensitive services, health care providers should understand Chinese people’s diverse preferences, but not overlook the similarities among them, and between them and people of other cultural groups.
