Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses the spiritual or religious issues in the care of the dying. It looks at the influence of the Liverpool Care Pathway for the Dying Patient (LCP) in religious and spiritual care and the available research of spiritual care in relation to palliative care. The chapter provides working definitions for spiritual care and religious care, and examines how and when to make an assessment of a patient's spiritual and religious needs, and who should meet these needs. It also presents detailed guidelines on dealing with the needs of different religious groups, including atheists, Buddhists, and Mormons. How to meet the non-spiritual needs is also studied.

Keywords:   religious issues, the dying, spiritual care, religious care, spiritual needs, assessment, guidelines, different religious groups, non-spiritual needs
