Abstract
Every patient, whatever their cultural background and religious affiliation, is entitled to receive healthcare that is sensitive, appropriate and person- centred. In the UK today, there are people from many different minority groups. There are also members of the host population who follow religions other than Christianity, either from birth or personal choice. The patient's chosen or birth faith should always play an integral part in their care. This helpful guide enables healthcare practitioners to rise to the challenge of providing culturally sensitive services by giving them an understanding.

Abstract
The engaging stories in Parish Nursing provide accessible and enjoyable accounts of real parish nurses, both paid and volunteer, who attend to the needs of their congregations in a variety of ways?from home, hospice, and hospital visits to community outreach. This revised edition gathers their stories of hearing and heeding God's call, of their faith that they are doing the ?right thing,? of their joys, sorrows, and challenges, and of their quiet dedication as they offer their time and talents to meet the needs of others. By offering inspiration and encouragement, along with a healthy dose of updated practical advice, this collection will make parish nursing theory come to life. These stories will honor practicing parish nurses, will guide the way for anyone contemplating parish nursing as a career, and will challenge church members and leaders to examine the role that their congregations play in health ministry?especially in meeting the long-term care needs of an aging population.

Abstract
Religion is a significant aspect of human experience that can provide a framework for an individual's response to a health challenge or transition. Individual religious beliefs, or those of a patient's family or community, may influence health care decisions and provide a means for coping. This book provides accessible and comprehensive information about various religions, offering nurses insight into their patients'religious beliefs and practices and thereby enhancing therapeutic care.The centerpiece of this book is the compilation of information about diverse religions written by highly knowledgeable religionists. The reference includes information, formatted concisely and consistently, on a religion's history and theology; views on health and suffering; explanations for disease; beliefs and practices related to birthing, childrearing, and dying; healing rituals; corporate religious resources for the sick; and more. Prefacing this information are chapters discussing clinical aspects of addressing religion at the bedside. These include strategies for sensitive and respectful communication about religion with patients, assessing a patient's religious beliefs, supporting bedside rituals that are part of a patient's religion, and understanding ethical and legal considerations.

Abstract
The past 25 years have witnessed an escalating discussion on the role of spirituality within health care. This scholarly volume is rooted in the belief that not only is religion integral to nursing care, but the religious beliefs of both nurse and patient can significantly influence care and its outcome. It offers an in-depth analysis of the ways in which religion influences the discipline of nursing, its practitioners, and treatment outcomes.Through the contributions of an international cadre of nurse scholars representing the world's major religious traditions, the book explores how theories, history and theologies shape the discipline, bioethical decision making, and the perspective of the nurse or patient who embraces a particular religion. It examines the commonalities between the values and thinking of nursing and religion and identifies basic domains in which additional research is necessary. The authors believe that ultimately, scholarly dialogue on the relationship between religion and nursing will foster and enhance nursing practice that is ethical and respectful of personal values.

Abstract
Delivers a wealth of practical information for fulfilling the spiritual needs of all patients and their families Written as a practical resource to teach nurses and nursing students, this text explores how to best address spiritual assessment and care. Spirituality, the search for meaning in life and connection to others, remains relevant to all patient interactions, and an essential component for nurses to integrate into their everyday practice. Using a multicultural and client-centered approach, chapters explore the concept of spirituality, and its relationship with religion and health to directly place spiritualty in a nursing context. Reflection questions interspersed throughout encourage the reader to analyze their own experiences with spirituality within both professional and personal contexts and affirm how a nurse's own spirituality can influence her or his practice
