Spirituality and Clinical Care Module (Spring 2013)

This nationally recognized interprofessional module brings together large and small groups of Nursing, Medical, and Health Profession students to discuss issues related to spirituality in healthcare. A variety of cases bring the students together to consider the spiritual needs of patients from their unique professional perspectives. In addition, the concept of spiritual self-care is introduced with a link to a module in the online course syllabus. Students are encouraged to explore the module and tend to their own emotional and spiritual health in order to better assess and meet the needs of their patients. An interprofessional group of faculty representing the School of Health Professions, the School of Nursing, and the School of Medicine facilitate the course interactions.
