Teaching Spiritual care - a grounded theory study among undergraduate nursing educators
Publiceret af Pamela H Cone, PhD, RN, CNS & Tove Giske PhD, RN., den 8. januar 2013Andre
Results: The participants' main concern was 'How to help students recognize cues and ways og providing spiritual care'. Participants resolved this by 'Journeying with students through their maturation'. This basic social process has three iterative phases that develop throughout the nursing programme: 'Raising student awareness to recognize the essence of spirituality', 'assisting students to overcome personal barriers', and 'mentoring students' competency in spiritual care'.
Conclusion: Nursing education should prepare students to recognize and act on spiritual cues. Making spiritual assessment and interventions more visible and explicit throughout nursing programmes, in both classroom and clinical settings, will facilitate student maturation as they learn to integrate theoretical thinking into clinical practice.
