Description

Within the past 10 years there has been growing interest in client spirituality. New spiritual assessment tools and treatment models have emerged and continuing education has started to address innovations in spiritual care. Despite these advances, factors that influence the provision of spiritual care require further exploration. There is some evidence to suggest that the helping relationship is central to the provision of spiritual care and serves as an effective form of treatment. This training explores the relationship skills hospice workers use in the delivery of spiritual care.
