Abstract

This month's column presents a case study of a Muslim patient and the considerations for culturally sensitive care that one nurse implemented. The interventions resolved potential cultural conflict and involved several departments within her agency. A brief review of the deliberations and decisions of the Institutional Ethics Committee identifies the supporting ethical arguments and the recommendations for developing cultural sensitivity within its healthcare organizations.
