A Resource for the Multi-Professional Health Care Team

An Interactive Approach
This new edition of an established introductory guide to spirituality and health care practice draws extensively on case studies illustrating the application of theory to practice. It encourages the exploration, through reflective activities, of what spirituality means, both to patients and to the healthcare professionals caring for them.
Faith, Science and Values in Health Care Provision
Informed by the principle of 'medicine of the person', the contributors argue for a medical practice which takes account of spirituality, ethics and theology in keeping with the ideas and beliefs of Paul Tournier, an influential Swiss GP whose thinking has had a substantial impact on routine patient care relevant to national health services.
Pattison draws on experience from his work in many settings - including community service volunteering, working as a psychiatric hospital chaplain, NHS management and lecturing on pastoral studies - to promote a personal, practical, political and popular approach to theology, which stresses the importance of responsibility and contemporaneity.
