Health Care Providers' Handbook on Muslim Patients second edition
Health Care Providers' Handbook on Muslim
|The Health Care Providers' Handbook on Muslim Patients is a quick-reference tool for health workers to use when caring for Muslim patients. The handbook aims to help health workers understand the religious beliefs and practices of Muslims that can affect health care, and provide links to further advice and resources.
The handbook covers a range of topics including prayer, holy days, fasting, end of life issues, sexual and reproductive health, and food requirements.
It is important to note that because of personal and cultural variations in the way Islam is practiced the handbook can only provide general information and advice. Health workers should always consult their patient about their personal level of religious observance.
The handbook was developed by Queensland Health in partnership with the Islamic Council of Queensland and forms part of the Multicultural Clinical Support Resource folder. The Multicultural Clinical Support Resource also contains the Health Care Providers’ Handbook on Hindu Patients and the Health Care Providers’ Handbook on Sikh Patients.
