Nearly 90% of Americans say that they are religious or spiritual and clients and their families frequently face common spiritual and religious concerns at the end of life. A considerable body of research has demonstrated the link between religious/spiritual beliefs and health. Studies have shown that medically ill patients who rely on religion are less likely to develop depression, have lower rates of suicide, and enjoy a greater sense of well-being and positive emotions than those who do not.
- Recognize the significance of religion and spirituality in the lives of those who are dying and their family and friends,
- Describe a variety of approaches to conducting a spiritual assessment for patients near the end of life, and
- Describe three common spiritual concerns of dying persons and their family and friends.
