The purpose of this course is to examine how the healthcare professional’s spiritual and religious makeup influences the role he or she plays in the field of hospice. In studying the fabric of knowledge that transcends science, the course neither labels one religion or practice as good or bad nor does it deny any claims of spiritual experiences or awakenings. The primary objective of this course is to lay credence to the psychological and cultural factors on spiritual and religious development and to understand its strengths and limitations as it interacts with the prioritizing value hospice takes in serving a religiously diverse community.
Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:
Chapter 1: Introduction
Chapter 2: Spiritual and Religion - Shades of Meaning

Chapter 4: The Role of Absolutes and Their Impact on Relationships
