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 Health Care analysis with a comparison to 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 include Sikh, Baha'i, Taoism, Shintoism, Zoroastrianism, Islam, etc (make sure it has a healthcare system). The Second faith Must be a world religion not a philosphy, and must have a health care system that can be analyzed.
In a minimum of 1,200-2,000 words, provide a Health Care analysis with a comparison of the different belief systems, reinforcing major themes with insights gained from your research as well as answering the following questions based on the research:
