Spiritual Care in NHSScotland
The Association of Hospice and Palliative Care Chaplains (Scottish Branch)
Keywords:healthcare, religion, medicine
‘Spiritual Care in NHSScotland’ emphasises spiritual care as broader than religious care, and makes clear the importance of well resourced spiritual and religious care within healthcare. In response, chaplaincy must become more accountable and professional. There are implications for ongoing training and registration of chaplains, and this may well create difficulties for part time and volunteer chaplains, as well as for church authorities. However, the Guidelines are to be welcomed as a means to improving practice in healthcare settings.
