Bridging the divide: Managing cultural conflicts in post-collision care

BC is a multicultural community. As a province we pride ourselves on our diversity, but that doesn’t mean that there aren’t cultural differences. One area where these differences often rear their head is when it comes to medical care.

Different cultures have different approaches when it comes to clinical treatment. But when it comes to compensation, the system is based largely on western medicine. That means your idea of what constitutes appropriate treatment for your injuries might at best differ from ICBC’s, and at worst actually harm your claim.
