Although knowledge on spiritual care provision in an interfaith context is essential for addressing the diversity of patients' religious and spiritual needs, an overview of the literature is lacking. Therefore, this article reviews the empirical literature on interfaith spiritual care (ISC) in professional caring relationships. A systematic search in electronic databases was conducted to identify empirical studies published after 2000. Twenty-two studies were included. The quality of the included studies was assessed, and their results were thematically analyzed...

Aim of this study is to measure effects of a training program on SC in PC based on the guideline. METHODS: A pragmatic multicenter trial using a quasi-experimental pretest-posttest design as part of an action research study...

In North American society people have diverse cultural and religious affiliations. The nursing profession underlines the importance of including patients’ spirituality in giving holistic care. However, studies suggest that the majority of nurses do not include the spiritual dimension on a regular basis. Therefore, we thought it important to focus on undergraduate nurses’ understanding of spirituality as well as on their perception of the nurse’s role in this area. We conducted a quantitative and descriptive cross-sectional study, which gave us an overall view of the students’ perceptions...

Spiritual care started worldwide in the late 1960s with the development of the hospice movement and death studies. Why did spiritual care start duringthis time in history ? In some Christian societies, of that time,"pastoral care" evolved into an interfaith "spiritual care" where in the caretaker was the main agent instead of the caregiver. On the other hand, the importance of palliative care for cancer patients was gradually acknowledged. In addition, this progress was accompanied by the academic development of "death studies" which is called "death and life studies" in Japan...

METHODS: A total of 96 subjects with COPD or lung cancer participated in this study, which was conducted between December 2014 and April 2016...

: 247 Background: Spiritual support is associated with better outcomes in cancer care and at the end of life (1, 2). Consensus guidelines advocate for incorporating spiritual care in the provision of specialist level palliative care (3). Contemplative care practices and chaplaincy interventions have the potential for mitigating existential distress, cultivating prognostic awareness, and fostering spiritual approaches to grieving and coping with advanced cancer. We present the results of a pilot program demonstrating the feasibility and impact of integrating a contemplative care chaplain in an outpatient palliative care program in a culturally diverse patient population in a large, academic cancer center...

Stillbirth is recognized as one of the most challenging experiences of bereavement raising significant spiritual and theological questions. Semi-structured qualitative interviews were conducted with bereaved parents cared for in a tertiary maternity hospital to explore the spiritual impact of stillbirth. Data were analysed using interpretative phenomenological analysis. Stillbirth was identified as an immensely challenging spiritual and personal experience with enduring impact for parents. The superordinate themes to emerge were searching for meaning, maintaining hope and questioning core beliefs...

Spiritual care is an increasingly important component of end of life care. As it emerges in Israel, it is intentionally built on a nonclerical model. Based on interviews with spiritual care providers in Israel, we find that they help patients and families talk about death and say goodbyes. They encourage the wrapping up of unfinished business, offer diverse cultural resources that can provide meaning, and use presence and touch to produce connection. As spiritual care emerges in Israel, providers are working with patients at the end of life in ways they see as quite distinct from rabbis...

BACKGROUND: Nurses account for a significant percentage of staff in the healthcare system. The religious beliefs of nurses may affect their competence to provide spiritual care to patients. No reliable and valid instruments are currently available to measure the religious beliefs of nurses in Taiwan. PURPOSES: The aims of this study were to develop a religious belief scale (RBS) for Taiwanese nurses and to evaluate the psychometric properties of this scale. METHODS: A cross-sectional study design was used, and 24 RBS items were generated from in-depth interviews, a literature review, and expert recommendations...

Quantitative studies have assessed nurses' attitudes toward and frequency of spiritual care [SC] and which factors are of influence on this attitude and frequency. However, we had doubts about the construct validity of the scales used in these studies. Our objective was to evaluate scales measuring nursing SC. Articles about the development and psychometric evaluation of SC scales have been identified, using, Web of Science, and CINAHL, and evaluated with respect to the psychometric properties and item content of the scales...
