Title: Spiritual Palliative Care


1
Spiritual Palliative Care
  • A Christian approach to ministry in the valley of
    the shadow of death

2
Jesus Christ says The Spirit of the Lord JHWH is
on Me, because JHWH has anointed Me to preach the
gospel to the meek, He has sent Me to bind up the
broken-hearted to proclaim liberty to captives,
and complete deliverance to the bound ones to
declare the acceptable year of JHWH, and the day
of vengeance of our God to comfort all who
mourn to appoint to those who mourn in Zion to
give them beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy
instead of mourning, the mantle of praise instead
of the spirit of infirmity so that one calls them
trees of righteousness, the planting of JHWH, in
order to glorify Himself, Isaiah 611-3

  • WHO1990 Palliative care is the active total
    care of patients whose disease is not responsive
    to curative treatment. Control of pain, of other
    physical, and of psychological, social and
    spiritual problems, is paramount. The goal of
    palliative care is achievement of the best
    possible quality of life for patients and their
    families. Many aspects of palliative care are
    also applicable earlier in the course of the
    illness, in conjunction with anti-cancer
    treatment.
  • Palliative care
  • Affirms life and regards dying as a normal
    process
  • Neither hastens nor postpones death
  • Provides relief from pain and other distressing
    symptoms
  • Integrates the psychological and spiritual
    aspects of patients care
  • Offers a support system to help patients live as
    actively as possible until death
  • Offers a support system to help the family cope
    during the patients illness and in their own
    bereavement.
  • Radiotherapy, chemotherapy, and surgery have a
    place in palliative care, provided that the
    symptomatic benefits outweigh the disadvantages.
    Investigative procedures are kept to a minimum.
