Summary "Innate and deeply personal, spirituality is an integral part of each of us. It affects every aspect of life - including one's health. For this reason, spirituality is becoming an increasingly important issue within the nursing community. Nursing the whole patient includes nurturing the spirit. Spiritual Care: Nursing Theory, Research, and Practice is the only text written to address the depth of this subject matter. Written from a universal standpoint, it details the "how-to's" of spiritual caregiving including spiritual assessment, planning care, documentation, ethical concerns, and numerous approaches to nurturing the spirit."--BOOK JACKET
