abstract
The changing demographic of the U.S. population has shed new light on the importance of providing all patients with the highest standard of care possible. An increase in the number of foreign-born residents with diverse religious backgrounds requires health care professionals to know strategies for understanding and responding to patients who practice less common religions as spiritual beliefs and practices may influence health care decision-making. Despite research that shows the importance of providing culturally competent care, little standardization exists for cultural competency education for health care professionals.
