How can health care providers deliver more culturally competent care? This PowerPoint deck and accompanying Facilitator’s Guide present specific examples that illustrate when religion comes up in patient care, together with concrete strategies for addressing this dynamic when it arises. This resource, available in both English and Hebrew, is designed for self-learning and/or for medical educators who want to train others.
Israel is a country where religion plays an important role in many people’s lives, and where there is great diversity among and within religious traditions. As a result, religious identity is a key social factor that can affect patients’ health care preferences, as well as the care they receive. While many providers in Israel recognize these issues, training and resources are sparse.
Tanenbaum, in collaboration with Three Faiths Forum Middle East, has therefore developed cutting-edge materials designed to support Israeli health care providers and institutions in providing religio-culturally competent care for patients from across the spectrum of religious backgrounds and practices.
