    • An Exploration of the Extent of Inclusion of Spirituality and Spiritual Care Concepts in Core Undergraduate Nursing Textbooks
  • Summary
    • It is clear that nurses have an increased interest in and motivation towards supporting patients spiritual needs needs (McSherry and Jamieson 2011, Timmins 2010, McBrien 2010). It is also important that nurses take up this activity following specific guidance as to what it entails and how it should be done (Pesut and Sawatzky 2006). However currently nurses lack specific skills in this area (Lundmark 2006, Timmins 2010, RCN 2010), and the extent to which their undergraduate education prepares them for this role is unclear. The literature abounds with definitions of spirituality, suggested interventions and tools for assessments. However while there is agreement that nurses should have guidance to provide spiritual care it is unclear what specific curricula content prepares the nurse for this important role or how core nursing textbooks contribute to this agenda (Pesut 2008). Given the absence of clear direction about what to teach undergraduate nursing students, the lack of conceptual clarity around definitions and suggestions that nurses perform spiritual assessment, this study explored the extent to which current core nursing textbooks support and advocate spiritual care delivery by nurses and nursing students.The study aimed to examine whether or not core undergraduate nursing textbooks define and include spirituality or spiritual care content. It also examined the extent to which core nursing textbooks advocate spiritual assessment by nurses. Project Team (Dr. F. Timmons (PI),Maryanne Murphy, Thelma Begley, Freda Neill & Greg Sheaf)
