The paper shows how the definition of health and wellness is reflected in various issues of life. Among the issues covered: Health Values, Beliefs, Assets and Practices (which incorporates personal responsibility, compassion and community responsibility and professionalism), today's health concerns and goals of the health profession.

From the Paper:

"When health care personnel work with the patient's beliefs, rather than alongside them, the outcomes are usually more victorious, measured not only in patient satisfaction but also in ease for the medical team in managing the patient and family. People in some cultures rely on home remedies to indulgence their illnesses rather than on pharmaceutical drugs. When prescribing drugs to patients of another culture, it is sensible to be aware that patients may resist taking the medication. Such unwillingness may be influenced by religious beliefs and practices. In addition, in some cultures, it is believed that illness (and recovery) is God's will."
