About this book

Introduction

In a multicultural society such as exists in Britain today, most nurses will, at some point, find themselves nursing a patient from a different religious or cultural background to their own. Jennifer Green's book Death with Dignity has therefore been compiled to meet the needs of nurses who find themselves in such situations. It provides information and guidance on the requirements that different religions have for the care of the dying and the preparation of the dead. Religions discussed include: Islam, Hinduism, Sikhism, Judaism, Buddhism and the Baha'i Faith. Also included is advice on transporting a body abroad for a funeral.
