For The Love Of All That Is Holy: Adapting To Your Patients’ Religious Beliefs

January 25, 2019
10:30 AM  -  11:45 AM
Split Rock Room

Description: Muslims women wear Hajibs, Jehovah’s Witnesses will not accept blood transfusions and Sikh men wear a turban.  Mormons have special undergarments, and the Church of The Firstborn does not believe in medical intervention.  There are a myriad of religions that you may encounter in EMS and we will talk about ways to accommodate these religious beliefs.  Come join the discussion and improve your patient care through a better understanding of how your patients’ religious beliefs affect your care plan.

Objectives:

  • The student will be able to identify common religious beliefs.
  • The student will be able to explain how these religious beliefs affect pt. care.
  • The student will be able to compare and contrast the need to balance pt. beliefs and wishes with good pt. care.
  • The student will be able to identify the ethical issues with withholding care due to pt. refusal on a religious basis.
