The connection between spirituality and health has been receiving a lot of attention in both the scientific and lay presses recently. Is religion good for your health? Should doctors talk with their patients about their spiritual or religious beliefs? Should doctors pray with their patients? Through research and evidence, spirituality has been shown to be central to the care of the dying. It is therefore critical that healthcare providers know how to address a patient's spiritualneeds. This book presents current thinking on how spiritual care can be integrated into traditional caregiving in a practical and informed manner. Chapters that specifically address different religious and cultural perspectives are included. Patients' stories are used throughout to offer real-worldexperience. With a foreword by the Dalai Lama, this book is a thoughtful and informative guide for anyone involved in cxaring for the chronically ill or dying.
