World Religions for Healthcare Professionals provides healthcare professionals with a basic knowledge of health beliefs and practices in world religions such as American Indian Religions, Buddhism, Christianity, Confucianism, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism, Sikhism, and Taoism as well as selected new religious movements. It explores how various religious traditions view sickness, health, birth, and death. Its primary aim is to offer healthcare professionals a greater awareness of beliefs and practices so that they will be better informed in providing effective care to patients from various religious backgrounds. Many deeply controversial bioethics issues such as abortion, euthanasia, assisted suicide, and stem cell research are also addressed in this volume from the perspectives of world religions. Written in a user-friendly fashion and easy to reference, this book is suitable for all health practitioners and organized in a way that will make it easy to search and learn basic applications.

Recensioner i media

'At a time when religious diversity increases daily, this book provides healthcare workers with a valuable resource. It not only introduces them to the health-related beliefs and practices of the major world religions but serves as a handy guide to healthcare etiquette.' Ronald L. Numbers, University of Wisconsin, USA 'World Religions for Healthcare Professionals is a sensitive, engaging, and deeply informative book that offers new insights to those who thought they understood the world's great religious traditions, as well as an orientation for those who have given little attention to matters of religion and health up till now. The consistent pattern in each chapter makes the book eminently accessible. It is a book to be read from beginning to end, and then consulted whenever the reader encounters persons from a tradition other than theirs - an invaluable resource.' David A. Hogue, Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary, USA
