Title: Spiritual Care Matters!

Spiritual Care Matters!
  • Irene McTaggart University of Dundee
  • Gillian Munro NHS Tayside
  • Liz Rogerson University of Dundee

Rationale for GLIDER
  • Ease of access and use
  • Increased viability
  • Student centred
  • Self directed
  • Adaptable to variety of clinical settings
  • Suitable to all healthcare workers

Who, What and Where?
  • Thirty Participants
  • Variety of
  • Backgrounds
  • Care contexts
  • Health Boards

Common Themes of Change
  • Students became more
  • focussed in their thinking
  • able to verbalise their understanding
  • aware of the needs of colleagues
  • considerate of the place of faith as appropriate
    to the individual
  • (in relation to spiritual
    care in a healthcare context)

New Thinking!
  • Before
  • What spiritual care means to me is that people
    should have the opportunities to continue with
    their faith, have access to members of their
    religious organisation
  • After
  • I believe spiritual care assists us in times of
    emotional stress, physical and mental health,
    loss, bereavement and dying, from diagnosis
    through treatment and into recovery. Not only in
    the carer patient relationship but in supporting
    their family, other carers, our colleagues and
    our own families and friends
  • Health Care Assistant

New Thinking!
  • Before
  • I understand spiritual care to recognise the
    person (child with complex needs) as an
    individual, their uniqueness and to acknowledge
    the contribution they have to make as such
  • After
  • For staff dealing with sickness and distress as
    part of their working lives it means making sense
    of the experiences they have and recognising the
    contribution they can make
  • Nurse

Thinking in a New Way!
  • Before
  • My understanding of human beings is that we are
    physical, mental and spiritual. We can only be
    whole human beings when we are aware of this and
    attend to the care of each part of our make-up in
    an holistic manner
  • After
  • Resources will include suitably trained spiritual
    care givers and all staff have an awareness that
    they have a duty to be aware of patients
    spiritual needs and see that they are addressed
  • Chaplain

Focussing in a New Way!
  • Before
  • Spiritual care means reaching out to someone in a
    way that is genuine and honest. It involves
    listening to, understanding and respecting
    someone just as they are as a human being and
    recognising the common bond that we all have as
  • After
  • Spiritual care means respecting and understanding
    peoples beliefs and values in an open and
    non-judgemental way. It means having an awareness
    of what makes life meaningful for an individual
  • Nurse

Student Evaluations
  • It has been encouraging to find out more about
    spirituality and most of our group are keen to
    hear if this is to be repeated in the future. I
    am sure it would benefit all students and trained
    healthcare professionals no matter what sphere
    they work in. It has certainly helped me.
  • Localities General Manager
  • I would really recommend GLIDER Spiritual Care
    Matters to my colleagues and to our trainees.
    The reading and references that I am working
    through are very good and relevant to us all.
  • Medical Consultant

Spiritual Care Matters!
  • As a Christian I thought I knew enough about
    spirituality to get me through life.
  • After participating in this course I have learned
    that I didnt.

Spiritual Care Matters!
  • I have found countless topics of reading material
    not only helping me to understand spirituality
    but also helping to understand religion.

Spiritual Care Matters!
  • As an employee of NHS , we are compelled to
    complete mandatory training events.
  • I think this course would be of benefit to all
    people in healthcare and should be mandatory.

Spiritual Care Really Matters!
  • A better understanding of
  • spirituality could only help people to be more
