Expain how the beliefs, religion and culture of individual and key people influence end of life care
Weegy: Spiritual, religious, and cultural beliefs and practices play a significant role in the lives of patients who are seriously ill and dying. [ In addition to providing an ethical foundation for clinical decision making, spiritual and religious traditions provide a conceptual framework for understanding the human experience of death and dying, and the meaning of illness and suffering [1]. The importance of spiritual and religious beliefs in coping with illness, suffering, and dying is supported by clinical studies as well as individual narrative descriptions [1-9]. Most patients derive comfort from their religious/spiritual beliefs as they face the end of life, and some find reassurance through a belief in continued existence after physical death [10]. However, religious concerns can also be a source of pain and spiritual distress, for example, if a patient feels punished or abandoned by God [11]. Furthermore, beyond the role of religious faith in coping and adjusting to illness, religion also influences patient's medical decisions, both about active treatment and end of life care [7,12-14]. A common goal for the dying patient, family members, and the health care professional is for a meaningful dying experience, in which loss is framed in the context of a life legacy [15]. Such an experience includes support for the patient's suffering, the avoidance of undesired artificial prolongation of life, involvement of family and/or close friends, resolution of remaining life conflicts, and attention to spiritual issues that surround the meaning of illness and death. A common goal for the dying patient, family members, and the health care professional is for a meaningful dying experience, in which loss is framed in the context of a life legacy [15]. ] (More)
