Opening the Spiritual Gate

Multiple dates

Having a conversation about spiritual issues is not always easy. However, when providing holistic care, addressing spirituality is everybody’s business and all of us in health care have a role to play.

This interactive full day workshop aims to support health and social care workers to develop confidence and skills in assessing and having conversations about spiritual needs with those in their care. Throughout the day, we will offer opportunities to:

  • Discuss the diversity and individuality of spiritual and religious needs
  • Consider how to open, maintain and close a conversation about spiritual issues
  • Understand the importance of concise and confidential reporting and communication of spiritual needs
  • Consider a management plan for meeting spiritual needs
  • Have access to available resources to support conversations
  • Develop an individual action plan to apply within the workplace

This course is facilitated by the Jersey Hospice Care Education Team

Presented by:
