The integration of healing and spirituality into health care : The spiritual and pastoral dimensions of interprofessional care.
This article describes spiritual healing, how it is organised and practised in the UK and the evidence to support it.
The author describes the current integration of spiritual healing as a therapy in medical care.
He contends that healing besides being a useful therapy is a way of introducing spirituality into health care and that the healing approach has much to offer.
Spirituality is defined and a practical way of integrating healing and spirituality is outlined.
Such an approach can bring benefit not only to patients, but to practitioners too.
The author believes the integration of spiritual healing holds immense possibilities to relieve suffering and restore compassion to the centre of all health provision.
