2017 Conference - Taking a Spiritual History: Good Medicine for the Patient and the Professional?

Peer reviewed and popular studies show that patients want their healthcare professional to be sensitive to their spiritual needs. But can that be done in a timely, professional, caring, and ethical manner? Healthcare professionals are often unclear how they might care for the whole person – physical, emotional, and spiritual. Also, many are lagging behind in the Joint Commission directives for whole person care. This practical session will equip you with proven tools that will empower you to provide a compassionate and superior level of patient care. It might also refresh your passion for work and ministry!
