The provision of spiritual or religious care in healthcare has received prominence in national reports, guidelines, and standards since the start of the millennium. According to these national recommendations, spiritual care is to be provided by healthcare providers, within their scope of practice, when the patient or patient advocate requests spiritual care; when there is evidence of spiritual or religious distress; or when there are requests for spiritual or religious resources.
The purpose of the presentation is to offer healthcare providers knowledge about spirituality in patient health care; to develop professional skills in spiritual care in healthcare; and to enhance one’s role and responsibility on the interdisciplinary team in practicing spiritual care in holistic healthcare.
