Two hospitals in Florida have created guides to help their staffs be sensitive to a patient’s language, religion, and culture.

Orlando Health distributes a cultural toolkit, and Florida Hospital distributes a “Guide to Religion and Culture.” In addition, the University of Central Florida teaches courses to medical students, nurses, and health professionals focused on cultural sensitivity.

In the Orlando Sentinel, one hospital manager said, “A patient is the best resource for their culture. Some cultures are highly traditional. Being aware of what some of those cultural traditions are can affect their ability or willingness to follow medical course of treatment.”

Kudos to these institutions for being understanding and for proactively creating awareness of the needs of followers of various religions.
