Summary "Muslim patients customarily have particular ways of approaching health and healthcare. This book addresses common misunderstandings and bridges cultural gaps. It includes a profile of the Islamic worldview, taking an 'insiders perspective' and explorers the concept of health and disease within this paradigm. Muslim practices and customs of direct relevance to health and healthcare are also explored and illustrated with case histories."--Back cover
