Spiritual care in palliative care– Series conclusion

Categories: Care.

The level of engagement with this series points to the fact that spirituality in healthcare, and particularly in palliative care, is being afforded greater recognition, and more research attention is being given to the spiritual needs of patients.

However, despite this increase in attention to spiritual issues in palliative care, as I mentioned at the beginning of the series, this conversation is far from over. I encourage all ehospice readers to interrogate their assumptions regarding the spiritual wellbeing of the patients that they care for, and to engage with the excellent research being done in this field.

Thank-you again to the contributors for making this series possible.
