The Dying Soul PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Dying Soul free pdf Holistic models of cancer and palliative care frequently refer to spirituality as an important element. But what do we mean when we talk about spirituality and how do we provide spiritual care? This work sets out an understanding of this complex domain, describing how spirituality is experienced and expressed, and looks at the impact of terminal illness. The author argues that if we are to recognise spirituality as a significant aspect of living and dying then care providers must develop an integrated, consistent and effective approach. Therefore issues of training, policy and practice all need addressing. Spirituality is often represented as the fourth pillar of palliative care, and yet it is often the least developed area in terms of both theory and practice. Originating from the author's clinical and teaching experience this book aims to explore the concepts, issues and practical implications of spirituality in care.
