Description
Summary:In offering an answer to the question, ‘Why is spirituality important within health and social care?' this paper articulates views on the concepts ‘Spiritual Vulnerability,' ‘Spiritual Risk' and ‘Spiritual Safety' and argues for the centrality of spirituality within holistic, person-centred professional health and social care. It proceeds to offer a definition of Spiritual Safety and then goes on to highlight how the patient being and feeling spiritually safe and how professional carers enabling spiritual safety can reduce spiritual vulnerability and spiritual risk; and may be seen as essential aspects of professional holistic care.
