dc.description.abstractLiterature criticised nursing care for giving minimal attention to the spiritual dimension in patient care (Baldacchino 2005, Oldnal 1996, Ross 1996). This may be due to lack oftime, work overload, secularisation of the contemporary society, feelings of incompetence to deliver spiritual care and lack of education in the curricula (Baldacchino 2006, McSherry 1998, Ross 1994). Bradshaw (1997) argues that spiritual care is caught rather than taught from role-models in the clinical area. However, it is argued that since spiritual care is not being given the merited attention, learning on the spiritual dimension in care through role-modelling appears to be impracticable.en_GB
