Support Doctors, Nurses and Other Healthcare Workers

December 16, 2022

According to the Tanenbaum Center for Interreligious Understanding,

“…[R]eligion is one of the key social factors that can affect medical care. Unfortunately, this topic receives very little attention in cultural competency training. As a result, today’s health care professionals are faced with increasingly diverse patient populations with needs that they may not be prepared to manage.”

Since the year 2000, ING has provided diversity trainings to over 150 hospitals, medical and dental schools, and hospital chaplain institutions about caring for Muslim patients. Over the past year, ING has delivered diversity trainings to hospitals across the country including to Kaiser, UCSF, Tufts Dental School, Zuckerberg General, The Chaplaincy Institute, and Sojourn Chaplaincy at San Francisco General Hospital.

Here is what one physician said about our ING training:

“The importance of the work of ING in the community at large cannot be overstated, given the current climate of misunderstanding and bias…The ING team were an ideal representation of Muslim Americans, which gave them credibility in speaking to our faculty, especially given that many were unfamiliar with the topics they addressed…from Islamophobia in healthcare to tips on healthcare delivery for Muslim patients.”
