Editorial Reviews

Lisa Stepp
This book addresses a very important issue in nursing today: spirituality and meeting patients' needs. The author exhibits a unique ability to describe the many events and crises faced by individuals today with scripture, poetry, and case studies. The purpose of this text is to explore the relationship between spirituality and nursing. Much of the literature to date has identified the spiritual needs of the patient as an area in desperate need of research and standards of care. This text uses a practical approach to educating the nurse in assessment and intervention. The author demonstrates compassion and intelligence in meeting this objective. This book is directed toward nursing undergraduates and graduate students, nurses, and advanced practice nurses. The author performed much of the research presented and is a leader in the field of spiritual care; she is also a fellow of the American Association of Nurses. Included in this text are a variety of perspectives on assessment of spiritual needs, a nurse's role in spiritual care, the nurse-patient relationship, and contemporary interest in spiritual care. The case studies presented here, along with the actual account of difficult spiritual situations, are poignant. The author has managed to touch on all aspects of spiritual intervention in a sensitive, nonjudgmental manner. The tone of the text makes it enjoyable and easy to read. The reference lists are extensive, including past and present quintessential articles. The area of spirituality in nursing has long been held as difficult to define and research. By educating nurses about spiritual needs, ways to identify their own beliefs, and ways to recognize and respect the beliefs ofothers, these nurses are better able to intervene appropriately when planning and providing care.
