The relationship between Middle Eastern patients and populations of Arab origin with western health care professionals are by no means free of cultural misunderstandings. The relationship is often strained by mutual cultural misunderstanding as well as communicative and linguistic hardship. Even though people from the Middle East do vary racially, they do have shared values and behavior. This can include the importance of family cohesion, and interactive attitudes toward ailments and health. Some issues and concerns in providing health care could vary from attaining adequate information to communicated suggested behavioral change by a patient. Culturally and linguistically appropriate guidelines are warranted to provide an understanding of the cultural distinctiveness of Arab Eastern patients by shortening the gap between the Arab cultures with the western medical culture thus improving their healthcare needs.
