Integrating Spiritual Care into Healthcare - An Evidence-Based Review

  • Breakout Session
  • Main Building ED 210/211/212
  • November 9 2024 9:30 AM - 10:30 AM

Spiritual care of our patients is critical for effective health care! After exploring the evidence for taking a spiritual history as well as for key interventions including prayer and spiritual community, we will describe approaches to integrate spiritual care into medical care while maintaining patient autonomy. This session will blend a review of the evidence with practical take-homes, drawing from overseas and domestic experience, to help us be more effective in our spiritual care of patients.
