conversations with Parish Nurses
Report of conversations with Parish Nurses and other interested people while travelling in Canada and England
While visiting Vancouver, Canada from 22/07/11 till 26/07/11 I was in conversation with two Anglican clergy resident in that area. Parish nursing is established in some parts of Canada but was an unknown quantity in this case.
I expanded on the concept of Parish nursing which is to promote individual and community health and well-being through education, counseling, pastoral support, information and referral, and care management services. Nurses seek to integrate body, mind and spirit, and nurture the growth towards wholeness in and through Jesus Christ the Source of healing.
