Effect of Culture:
If the physician or caretaker understands the culture he belongs to then it would be easier for him to understand the culture of the patients and understand them no matter how culturally diverse the patient is. Understanding the culture of different people will enable the caretaker to come to know the different beliefs in different cultures and they may sometimes be helpful in dealing effectively with the patient.
Effects of Spirituality:
Many patients prefer it when their physician or caretaker asks them about their religion and spirituality as it enhances a personal relationship to some extent. Studies show that patients often use spirituality to deal with their stress and it is very helpful if the caretaker also understands about spirituality as it helps in diagnosis as well.
