Cultures are beliefs, knowledge, and languages people use to communicate with others. In the same rationale, the communication between Chinese and Western medicinal cultures is the communication between two medicinal beliefs, knowledge, and languages. In this article, the key components of Chinese and Western cultures will be discussed to lay the foundations for better communication of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) in the Western world. Besides the discussion of similarities and differences between the two cultures, the potential of being complementary to each other in practices will be explored. Moreover, in this article, using key leadership skills to enable better communication and practices of TCM in the Western world will be examined as well.
