Week 1 Discussion: The Study of Religion

There are many reasons to study religion, however I chose two reasons which are Insight into people and Insight into family traditions. In the text, Insight into people defines “Understanding a person’s religious background tells you more about that person’s attitudes and values” (Molloy, 2020 p. 25). It is an important reason of choice because this is how you understand a person’s belief system and their values; it is also how you relate to a person or identify why the person responded the way they do or handle situations in life the way they do. When relating to my current role as a RN field base case manager, it is imperative for me to know as a nurse the cultural beliefs of the patient so I can understand how to apply goals or understand the patient’s belief system which will allow me to share with the medical team so next steps of treatment can be in place for care of the patient………..Kindly click the purchase icon below to access full solution for $5
