About-

Health care provision has recently seen a marked increase of interest in holistic patient care. As part of this move, spiritual welfare is now recognized as being of key importance in promoting a sense of well-being in all patients, families, and staff.

Written by an experienced hospital chaplain, Spiritual Aspects of Health Care provides you with a comprehensive guide to meeting the spiritual and religious needs of all your patients. An initial introduction to the nature of spiritual care is followed by a specific section on the career as a resource, covering self-knowledge, skill development, and the interaction involved in the caring relationship. Common patient responses to illness, pain, loss, and recovery are then discussed. The final section provides you with a comprehensive summary guide to enable you to meet the spiritual needs of any individual.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"There are numerous examples (here) to illustrate the difficulties with communication where grief and anger often combine. Medical and nursing staff sometimes find great difficulty in knowing how to respond to these situations and it is to be hoped that this book will find its way to bookshelves of all grades of staff committed to caring for the sick and the dying."
--E. M. Symonds, Dean of the Medical School, Nottingham
