Abstract

Abstract: In many societies, spirituality is no longer specifically religious or affiliated in a traditional sense. This is especially true in the Netherlands. This study examined the qualities of Dutch Christian healthcare professionals, opportunities and threats to being Christian, and their perceived need for support to be Christian. Respondents (N = 672) had a highly homogeneous picture of the qualities, opportunities, and challenges of living out faith at work. However, they do not think they have the qualities or opportunities to be overtly Christian and would like support to be more explicit in their faith.
