Worldview is our perception of how the world works. It includes issues such as moral and ethical reasoning, social relationships, and communications. Healthcare professionals need to take a person’s worldview into consideration because it affects behaviors, perceptions, communication, and decisions. Some decisions are made daily, such as whether to take a medication or not, but major health decisions, such as beginning and end-of-life decisions, are also subject to the patient’s worldview.
