About this title


This extraordinary compendium of religious traditions is invaluable to all healthcare providers. The user-friendly resource contains specific and detailed information on faith traditions vital for providing optimal spiritual care in a clinical setting. A series of inspirational introductory chapters promote the importance of spiritual well-being as a vital component in whole person care, but the majority of the book forms a compilation of articles from a wide-ranging expert panel of contributors. Ideal for quick reference, the A-Z organisation from American Indian Spirituality to Zoroastrianism is presented in a clear and logical format, covering: History and Facts Basic Teachings Basic Practices Principles for Clinical Care . Dietary Issues . General Medical Beliefs . Specific Medical Issues . Gender and Personal Issues Principles for Spiritual Care Through the Cycles of Life Concepts of Living and Dying for Spiritual Support . During Birth . During Illness . During End of Life Care of the Body Organ and Tissue Donation Scriptures, Inspirational Readings and Prayers


'One of the best aspects of the book is the balanced exploration of spirituality in the early chapters, supported by relevant research. The advantages and disadvantages of spirituality are briefly explored...There is no doubt this is a well-written compendium providing healthcare practitioners with useful information about different religions.' Phil Russell, lecturer practitioner bereavement service, The Rowans Hospice, Portsmouth, UK, Nursing Older People Journal 'This inspiring American book is not an exhaustive account of all faiths, but I now know about belief systems I previously did not know existed... The authors summarise practices that may need to be adhered to at birth, during illness and at end of life. It would be ideal as a ward resource, or for reference in a library.' Jill Hardman-Smith, Liverpool Care Pathway facilitator/Macmillan specialist sister, University Hospitals of Leicester, UK, Cancer Nursing Practice Journal
