Spirituality in Hospice Care : How Staff and Volunteers Can Support the Dying and Their Families, Paperback / softback Book

Spirituality in Hospice Care : How Staff and Volunteers Can Support the Dying and Their Families Paperback / softback

Edited by Andrew Goodhead, Nigel Hartley

Description

Publishing on the 50th anniversary of the opening of St Christopher's Hospice - widely thought of to be the first modern hospice, combining pain and symptom management with education and training - this edited collection discusses what motivates professionals and volunteers to provide spiritual care.

This book shows how the world of hospice care is moving on from Cicely Saunder's, founder of St Christopher's Hospice, legacy to providing spiritual care in a more integrated manner.

With entries from doctors, nurses and CEOs among others, this book informs good practice for professionals and volunteers providing spiritual care for patients and their families.

It looks at how, for many of these professionals, spirituality does not have to be grounded in organised religion, but stems from understanding and providing for our human needs.
