Australia has a land mass similar to the United States of America, supporting a population of just over 20 million, which is distributed predominantly across the coastal perimeter. The Australian society is rich in cultural diversity fostered by decades of migration. Both these factors present challenges for health care.

Second, the cultural diversity of Australians is a challenge to providing evidence-based treatment recommendations [1].
