With the vast number of cancer diagnoses each year, it is crucial that comprehensive oncology treatment provides the best possible treatment for all patients. In addition to traditional palliative care, understanding of patients’ religious beliefs and practices is an integral piece to providing overall comfort and personalized, integrative care. This paper explores the various religious practices and considerations for cancer treatment of Christian, Jewish, Islamic, and Buddhist individuals, and how healthcare providers can best care for these diverse patients.
