Healthcare professionals navigate cultural and religious diversity daily. We can help healthcare providers explore religion-related issues necessary to best provide effective care for the patient populations served.
Religious Diversity in Healthcare
What is religion? How is religion different from culture? What are the correlations between religion and health? This session provides frameworks and distinctions for responding to religious difference among the employees and clients of healthcare agencies and facilities with a focus on the healthcare provider-patient interactions.
Religion-Informed Attitudes Toward Dying
Religious beliefs and religious rituals—which also intersect with cultural values and behaviors—can be complex. It may be impossible to predict how any one person or family will understand health, illness, or death; yet it is helpful to be aware of the possibilities. This training provides a practical guide to offering deeper, more compassionate, and specifically religion-competent care.
