Spirituality: the heart of nursing
This is a book to pick up and delve into. Here, you will find knowledge and ideas that may help you make your own spiritual journey, as well as helping people in your care to make theirs. It covers such issues as: nurses as spiritual carers; nurses as wounded healers; spirituality as a healing force; spirituality in care; ageing, spirituality and the nursing role; spiritual care in dementia; the meaning of spirituality and the nurse's role in providing spiritual care to the dying patient; and spiritual care of palliative care patients. The message of the book is that nurses are special people, who are also conscious that our spiritual well-being is just as important as our physical health.
