In conclusion, the concept of imago Dei is fundamental in healthcare as it reminds healthcare providers to treat every patient with respect, dignity, and empathy, regardless of their beliefs, religions, or social status. It is important to understand that every individual’s life is valuable and meaningful, and healthcare providers should make sure to uphold their moral and ethical responsibilities. If everyone adheres to this belief, it would lead to a better healthcare system where every patient would receive equal and quality care.
