Abstract

Describing the Care of Muslim Patients app (Feb 9, p 443),1 Aasim Padela concludes that it is a “resource for those seeking to learn about the intersections of Islam, Muslim patients' behaviours, and medical practice”, and that is all it is. Regarding this app as an information source to help understand patient behaviour is fine. However, health-care quality and medical management options offered to patients should not be influenced by it. Even assuming the app information is trusted, the type of medical advice should not depend on patients' religion, or what their appearance suggests about their religious beliefs
