Ever since the first edition of Verna Benner Carson's Spiritual Dimensions of Nursing Practicewent out of print, second-hand copies have been highly sought after bypractitioners in the field and nursing school faculty who appreciatedthe comprehensive scope of the seminal work on spirituality and health.In this highly anticipated revised edition, Carson and her co-editor,Harold G. Koenig, have thoroughly revised and updated this classic inthe field.
The revised edition builds on the foundations laid in the first,providing perspectives on new research in the spiritual dimensions ofnursing care, applying nursing theory to spiritual care, and addressingthe spiritual needs of both nurses and patients. It also examinesethical issues in nursing and the impact of legal decisions on healthcare issues. Contributors address issues of spiritual development acrossthe entire lifespan—from the spiritual needs and influences of the veryyoung to the elderly, including those facing chronic illnesses ordeath. The volume takes a similarly broad approach in addressingspiritual issues from a variety of faith backgrounds—including boththeistic and pantheistic religious practices, so that nurses can beprepared to meet the needs of patients from various religioustraditions.
Second to chaplains, nurses are the major providers of spiritual care, and no other book will serve their needs like Spiritual Dimensions of Nursing Practice.
