Understanding of health and disease/illness in different countries, Health care in a cultural sensitive manner, Expressing pain in different cultures and the Relationship between health and migration should be topics addressed in a relevant curriculum. An efficient communication with an immigrant population requires skills such as active listening and empathy so these should be the main aims of an educational curriculum. Apart from interpersonal and communication skills an intercultural education program should aim at the development of skills for achieving effective compliance of culturally diverse groups as well as diagnostic and counselling skills.
