Abstract

This article presents the topical review of the pain literature as it relates to culturally diverse patient groups. There are multiple factors to be considered when evaluating the influence of culture on the pain experience. Cultural identity is comprised multiple domains including religious values, rites of passage, language, diet, and leisure activities. Importantly, a key source of cultural identity is ethnicity, and this is reflected by themore accepted referent for ethnicity, “ethnoculture.” This review focused on investigating the efficacy of multidisciplinary interventions for culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) communities. Collecting demographic information that adequately describes an individual’s ethnocultural identity is difficult, evidenced by the lack of uniformity in how studies investigating racial, ethnic, and cultural dimensions of pain measure such constructs. Although chronic pain is considered a global burden, the estimates and determinants of chronic pain disorders among CALD communities are poorly understood because those who do not read or speak the dominant languages within the country of research are often excluded as participants in research studies.
