Project #88045 - Health Care and Faith Paper

Description

The practice of health care providers at all levels brings you into contact with people from a variety of faiths. This calls for knowledge and acceptance of a diversity of faith expressions.

The purpose of this paper is to complete a comparative analysis of two faith philosophies towards providing health care, one being the Christian perspective. For the second faith, choose a faith that is unfamiliar to you. Examples of faiths to choose from are Sikh, Baha'i, Buddhism, Shintoism, etc.

In your comparative analysis, address all of the worldview questions in detail for Christianity and your selected faith. Refer to Chapter 2 of Called to Care: A Christian Worldview for Nursing for the list of questions. Be sure to address the implications of these beliefs for health care.

In a minimum of 1,500-2,000 words, provide a comparative analysis of the different belief systems, reinforcing major themes with insights gained from your research and answering the following questions based on the research:

  1. What is your spiritual perspective on healing?
  2. What are critical common to all religions/beliefs spiritual components of healing, such as prayer, meditation, belief, etc.? Explain.
  3. What is important to patients of the faiths when cared for by health care providers whose spiritual beliefs differ from their own?

In your conclusion, describe what you have learned from the research and how this learning can be applied to a health care provider.

Support your position by referencing at least three academic resources (preferably from the GCU Library) in addition to the course readings, the Bible, and the textbooks for each religion. Each religion must have a primary source included. A total of six references are required according to the specifications listed above.  Incorporate the research into your writing in an appropriate, scholarly manner.

Prepare this assignment according to the APA guidelines found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center. An abstract is required.
