Religious multicultural health care in a secularised pluralistic society
Social Sciences and Humanities Journal (SSHJ), Volume 2, Sep 2017

In contemporary pluralistic Western societies, the health care system over recent decades has more and more incorporated the idea of ?multicultural health care?. Instead of focusing on the given health care, our research has focused on the demand. In addition, it has examined how health care takers in Sweden think about and experience ?multi cultural health care,? with religious aspects in mind. The results show a very complex situation. Firstly, there is the question of who is responsible for the religious part of the ?multi cultural health care?. Is it the health care institutions, the religious organizations, the health care takers or the health care takers family? Secondly, broad spectrums of religious needs that can be very individual or very close to specific religions come into play. Finally, there is the question of how professionals within health care do not want to interfere with the health care takers private sphere, which in a secularized society as Sweden often includes religion.
