Spirituality and Healthcare

  1. I am researching Clinical Pathways for Spirituality. Anyone with experience? I have seen a critical pathway for Cardiac Care and spirituality and it is very intriguing.

    Nick- I sent a E-mail, but if you did not get it, read this. I am in the preliminary stages of integrating spirituality and medical care within a working committee. There emphasis is a research questionaire on spiritual assessment. Hopefully this will evolve to intervention based on relaxation and response. I will fax what I have.

    I was interested in the pathway that you have
    seen for Cardiac Care and spirituality. I live in a rural area and hopeful of initiating a Parish Nursing Program. The pathway you mentioned was interesting to me. Thanks!

    I am a nurse friend of Kathy O and wonder about your meaning of clinical pathway to spirituality ? We are spirit but have not been taught to acknowledge this. SO many "learned"fears abound regarding beliefs about death, judgement and only one life. Releasing fear beliefs helps to change our mind focus to the loving emotions that are quite healing. One of kathy's books about depression has a very good down to earth information that gives us knowledge to support patients going through their life experience. The answer is within us and it helps to search for the knowledge.

    Ten Points to Joyce (friend of Kathy O)

    You have hit the nail on the head. The problem is that everyone is always looking for the answers in a clinical pathway, textbook , or seminar. If you look to other Alternative/Complimentary modalities, you'll see alot that they have in common that work for many people and most integrate spirituality in some form.

    Myst - I agree with you & Joyce ~ there is plenty out there that will help the person center themselves and look within. Available now are Meditation, Guided imagery, Healing Touch, Taichi, Qigong, Reiki etc. also Auromotherapy to assist in setting the tone etc.. for beginners, Guided imagery is probably the best.
    Namaste! Sandy
