The complex relationship between patients and providers in multicultural heath care settings is studied, with particular emphasis on the ways in which various groups utilize new and emerging media to seek out health-related information to manage their own care or care of others. This course examines how culture affects health and health care decisions, including perceptions of health, disease, treatments, and values associated with these factors. The need for cultural sensitivity to various populations based on race and ethnicity, age and income, among other factors in health care, is stressed.
