Accreditation/Credit Designation
Baylor College of Medicine is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
Baylor College of Medicine designates this live activity for a maximum of 5.50 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
Program Overview
"There is no clear evidence in the literature that a formalized training on Muslim culture is available for delivery to a multidisciplinary health care professional audience." Islamic Bioethics is one of these areas. Resources in this topic are relatively limited and need further development. 
Target Audience
Physicians, Nurse Practitioners, Chaplains, Community leaders, Imams, Social Workers.
Educational Objectives
At the conclusion of the activity, participants should be able to:


Identify potential bioethics issues when providing care to Muslim patients, particularly related to end-of-life treatment, organ donation, and pediatrics


Develop better culturally competent communication strategies when approaching families regarding issues in bioethics


Evaluate and interpret Islamic Bioethics in comparison to Secular, Catholic, Christian, and Jewish bioethics
