  • Patients wearing the Hijab

    Please don't take this the wrong way...no offence to fellow colleagues who are muslims .....but would you feel comfortable conducting an MUR or giving advice to a patient wearing a veil......

        I can see how it must make some people uncomfortable if they wear the full face one though, and I haven't met anyone completely covered. I think that might make me feel uncomfortable. If they just have a scarf on, then that doesn't bother me in any way, as you can still see their face and thus their reactions to what you are saying.

          Hijab

          I may feel it is a little different talking with a client who wore the veil and hijab but not as awkward as she may feel if I asked her to remove it. To some people asking them to remove their veil challenges the very core of their practices.

            I've spoken to many patients who wear hijab/veil and most are absolutely fine. I know some people personally who wear the veil and they're just the same as other folk! Just takes a bit of getting used to speakin to someone who's u cant see, so u have to listen carefully!! lol

                I watched the channel4 programme on Women Only Jihad, which interviewed some British Muslim women wearing the full face hijab thing. All the women on the programme were well spoken, eloquent and fiesty.

                  Education

                  education is so beautiful, it removes attack and brings about dialogue.
                  I suppose my view could be biased because i'm a muslim, but i don't mind the concept of the veil. you probably don't want me to start drifting off into an explanation! lol.
                  However, it can make communication a bit difficult but not impossible. i personally wouldn't think that its a major issue

                      Now we're talking - I'm in favour of any law that gets women to take their clothes off ;-)
