Excerpt

Providing patients with spiritual care is essential, yet research shows that many nurses lack understanding about their role in meeting patients' spiritual needs. It's vital that both educators and leaders help nurses recognize the important function of providing spiritual care to patients and their families.

This information was shared with nursing administrators at the local hospital, who implemented a quality improvement (QI) initiative to ensure the integration of spiritual care into everyday nursing practice.
