Followers of Islam are known as Muslims or Moslems. It’s also acceptable to refer to followers as “Islamic.” Muslim-Americans are the most racially diverse religious group in the U.S. Twenty-eight percent of the national Muslim population is African-American while 38% of Muslim-Americans classify themselves as “white.” About one in four identify themselves as “Asian,” 4% are “Hispanic” and the remainder classify as “other.” This CE module gives healthcare providers information about providing culturally competent care to patients who are Muslim.


The goal of this program is to update nurses’ and occupational therapists’ knowledge of providing culturally competent care to a patient who is Muslim. After studying the information presented here, you will be able to:
  • Identify two significant Islamic health-related practices or beliefs
  • Identify three communication strategies useful when caring for patients who are Muslim
  • Describe two actions that are consistent with Islamic practices and beliefs
