Sociology teaches about different cultures and customs that may seem strange to some people. As a health care provider, one must treat all of their patients with the same respect, even if you cannot understand the unfamiliar practices of a certain group. One may have to treat a patient who practices things that may offend their morals, but they still must be treated the same as anyone else.
