10-09-2017 23:41

Syrian, Iraqi, and Somali refugees are some of the most recent refugees being resettled in the U.S. at a time when the political and social environment in the United States. is increasingly threatening to those who are perceived as Muslim or Arab. Much of the bias is fueled by the fact that most U.S. citizens have little knowledge of Arab and Muslim cultural values and traditions. The knowledge gap is particularly evident in the care of Arab and Muslim women. This session will provide participants with a quick review of best practices for care of these underserved and understudied women. Their care poses challenges for health providers unfamiliar with their health influences. Using a case-based format, topics to be covered for this female population include addressing family planning issues, screening for cancer, domestic violence, parenting, and mental health.
