Caring for the Muslim Patient- RCNA Workshop (Vic)

3 December, 2010, Melbourne

Most healthcare professionals may have to care for a Muslim patient at some stage. Being cared for in hospital, a day surgery facility or a nursing home can be a very stressful experience. For healthcare professionals and pastoral carers, knowledge of and sensitivity towards a patient’s religious and cultural background can help providing appropriate and effective care to their Muslim patients.
The topics covered in this workshop are:

  • Introduction to Islam.
  • Caring for the Muslim patient from the cradle to the grave.
  • The Muslim diet – halal vs haram.
  • Resolving disputes with Muslim patients.
