Using a spiritual history to uncover religious struggle (ICMDA Webinar – 3 of 5)

I was honored, privileged, and blessed to present a series of five global webinars for the International Christian Medical and Dental Associations. This is the third and is on the subject of “Using a Spiritual History to Uncover Religious Struggle.”

The use of a spiritual assessment by health professionals as part of a social history has been considered a vital part of quality whole-person health care for decades. However, virtually all of the spiritual assessment tools in use today (i.e., GOD, HOPE, FICA, SPIRIT, etc.) fail to inquire about a critical health factor: religious struggle. A developing and robust literature shows religious struggle can predict future morbidity and mortality of various types. How can Christian health professionals inquire about and deal with the surprisingly common religious struggles patients encounter?

In case you missed it, a webinar recording is now available:
