Abstract

The nurses' role in providing spiritual care to in-hospital patients is not clearly outlined in the Republic of Ireland (ROI). This and other deficits reveal that there are current gaps in nurses' knowledge and confidence in this area. In response, an educational innovation has been developed and this article reports on its development.
