Abstract
It's undeniable that understanding a patient's cultural practices and spiritual beliefs influence not only the delivery of health care in our global society, but also the individual's outcome and satisfaction. If a patient, because of a cultural or spiritual disconnect, can't appreciate what is being prescribed or why it's necessary, or if the information is delivered in a way that inadvertently frightens, offends, or confuses the patient, how can we fulfill our mission as health care providers?
This revised and expanded edition of the Cultural and Religious Sensitivity Pocket Guide includes new content that focuses on the importance of awareness of not only a patient's cultural background but also his or her religious beliefs to provide patient-centered health care. The Pocket Guide continues to offer health care professionals the information they need to successfully communicate with their patients, while also respecting their specific cultural and religious needs and expectations related to health care.
