Activity Description

Delivering high-quality care to patients of the Muslim faith requires knowledge of the differences in cultural and spiritual values. Important differences include diet, ideas of modesty, privacy, touch restriction, and alcohol intake restriction. Globally, Muslims represent substantial portions of society and remain the fastest-growing religion in the world. A healthcare professional will likely care for a Muslim patient during his or her career. The Muslim faith encompasses several ethnicities with diverse views regarding illness and healthcare. As a result, the care of Muslim patients provides challenges for many non-Muslim healthcare providers. The Islamic faith can influence decision-making, family dynamics, health practices, and risks, and the use of healthcare. This activity describes the care of Muslim patients taking into account their religious views on health and illness while at the same time maintaining confidentiality.
