I am in dire need of help

    I have spent hours and hours searching for a nursing article about any cultural or religious tradition that would lead to non-compliance with medication administration. I can find all kinds of information on how different ethnicities respond to drug treatment, but cannot find access to an article about refusal or aversion to "western" medicine. There must be some group out there that might not agree to receive medication. Please give me some direction.

    How about Christian Scientists? My classmate in grade school would not get immunizations because of her faith.

    Transfusions? (ala Jehova's Witnesses)
    Or, in many countries, it is considered indecent for a man to perform exams on women...I'm sure there are implications to that as well.

    The Amish don't believe in birth control. Suppose a woman was told not to get pregnant d/t a medical condition (DM, possible uterine rupture)? How would this be handled?

    BTW, the Amish DO go to physicians and hospitals. (And they do believe in sex.) I'll bet there's articles on this somewhere. I don't know if they would abstain for medical reasons (which would be violating a Biblical order - cleave unto each other and all that) or if they would actually use birth control.

    If an Amish woman was having dysmenorrhea, and OCPs or so-called "mini pills" would correct it, would they allow the woman to take them?

    Call a hospital or medical school/nursing school in Lancaster County, PA.

    Have you read the book "The Spirit Catches You and You Fall Down"?

    Some very devout Mormons will not take their underwear off. That's the wrong name of it. Its like long underwear that is worn all the time. However if you have to give someone a shot or apply a patch. They will not remove it if they are very devout.
