Abstract

The home health clinician may be aware that the patient has spiritual needs, but may be unable to respond to these needs. This may be due to inadequate education or the assumption that spiritual needs should be addressed by chaplains, clergy, or other "spiritual" care providers. In reality, clinicians in the home are in the best position to offer spiritual support when caring for patients in their homes at the end of life.
