Death and dying are cultural as well as biological events and health professionals need to be aware of the cultural and religious beliefs of their dying patients and their families. For asylum seekers and refugees, the experience of losing a relative maybe especially traumatic as they do not have the support of their family (and friends) and they may have different death customs.
