AHospital Handbook for Multiculturalism and Religion is a succinct guide to the care of patients from a variety of faiths. The original version included Christianity, Islam, Judaism, Hinduism, Sikhism, Buddhism, and Baha'i. In the revised edition Neville Kirkwood has added chapters on Taoism, Confucianism, Neo-Confucianism, Chinese Buddhism, and Jainism. Each chapter examines not only the customs of adherents to various faith perspectives but also the significance of certain rites and attitudes, supplying health-care workers and chaplains with the information they need to provide the best care possible.

This pocket-sized book gives the essence of what you need to know about diet restrictions, hygiene requirements, modesty issues and basic etiquette for helping members of the main religions and cultures of the world. It will save you some headache, and help you avoid insulting unintentionally. As a Chaplain, I give a copy to the Hospital Corpsman of any unit that is deploying.
