Spiritual Assessment (or Spiritual History) in Clinical Care

Last February (it was 2022, and not 2021 as I have on the slide), I was asked to present a keynote address at the Faith and Medicine Conference held just north of Atlanta on the topic of healthcare professionals using a spiritual assessment or spiritual history with their patients — the “why’s” and the “how’s.” The organizers have just sent me the URL that will allow you to watch the ~one-hour presentation.I talk about subjects such as:

  • Evidence-based reasons for a spiritual assessment
  • Basic spiritual assessment
  • Advanced spiritual assessment
  • Religious struggles impact on outcomes
  • Word of caution
  • How to get healthcare missionary training.
