Culturally Congruent Care From the Perspectives of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Wehbe-Alamah, H., Hammonds, L. S., & Stanley, D. (2020) Journal of Transcultural Nursing. https://doi.org/10.1177/1043659619900000
Introduction: Judaism, Christianity, and Islam are three world religions that occupy much of the world stage in health care, journalism, and media. Nurses frequently provide care for representatives of these groups. Culturally competent nurses recognize that there are differences and similarities within and between these religions. Methodology: This article incorporates findings from a scholarly review of the literature and transcultural nursing/health care principles and is guided by Leininger’s Culture Care Diversity and Universality Theory. It discusses the roots from which these religions emerged, and the similarities and differences in religious beliefs and practices as pertained to health care. Conclusion: Nurses and other health care professionals may use knowledge presented in this article to conduct individualized cultural assessments and provide culturally congruent health care to Jewish, Christian, and Muslim populations. Leininger’s three culture care modes of decisions and actions offer a creative approach to providing meaningful and helpful culturally sensitive care
