The Spirit of Palliative Practice: A Qualitative Inquiry Into the Spiritual Journey of Palliative Care Physicians
Palliative & supportive care 2010 Dec; 8(4): 415-20
Much is known about the important role of spirituality in the delivery of multidimensional care for patients at the end of life. Establishing a strong physician-patient relationship in a palliative context requires physicians to have the self-awareness essential to establishing shared meaning and relationships with their patients. However, little is known about this phenomenon and therefore, this study seeks a greater understanding of physician spirituality and how caring for the terminally ill influences this inner aspect.
