Spirituality: The Human Dimension in Care Collection home page Statistics

The aims of this conference were to help us understand the meaning of spirituality and spiritual care, as well as the integration of the spiritual dimension within the definition of holistic care. Furthermore, the conference made us aware of the current research on spirituality in patient care, thereby projecting the subject firmly on an evidence-based platform. These aims were captured in the logo of the conference, namely a flying/active dove symbolizing peace. And indeed, we need to feel at peace with ourselves in our delivery of care, in our communication with patients and with our colleagues. This brings me on to state what spirituality means to me and I believe what it means to all of us: Spirituality is the physical, psychological, social and cultural aspects of our life, integrated harmoniously with the scope of finding meaning and purpose in our life, based on the values of love, truthfulness, trust, dedication and altruism.
