ING’s Healthcare for the Muslim Patient seminar provides healthcare professionals with the information and skills needed to enhance their healthcare delivery to Muslim patients. After an overview of terminology, traditions and practices, and demographics, the presentation describes Islamic perspectives on illness and healthcare, family systems, decision-making processes, dress codes, privacy and gender issues, and dietary guidelines; women’s healthcare, including reproductive issues, labor, and delivery; and Islamic views on death and dying and end-of-life issues, including emergency treatment, life support, and terminal illness and palliative care. There will be ample opportunities for questions and comments throughout the seminar, allowing participants to share their current policies and experiences caring for Muslim patients.

ING Content Manager Ameena Jandali will provide this seminar to students and educators at the University of North Carolina at Pembroke via webinar.
