Back cover copy

Innate and deeply personal, spirituality is an integral part of each of us. It affects every aspect of life-including one's health. For this reason, spirituality is becoming an increasingly important issue within the nursing community. Nursing the whole patient includes nurturing the spirit. Spiritual Care: Nursing Theory, Research, and Practice is the only text written to address the depth of this subject matter. Written from a universal standpoint, it details the "how-to's" of spiritual caregiving including spiritual assessment, planning care, documentation, ethical concerns, and numerous approaches to nurturing the spirit. Other features include:

A balanced presentation of religion as both a positive and a negative factor that influences health and coping. Chapter-ending Look Within to Learn features encourage spiritual self-awareness and understanding of how spirituality influences clinical care. Research Profiles boxed features provide profiles of research studies that focus on spirituality and health. One Nurse's Story boxed features illustrate a nurse's perspective of concepts and clinical examples of spiritual caregiving. Chapter-ending Key Points summarize material to reinforce the information presented.
