La cura spirituale. Sfide e prospettive per una medicina centrata sulla persona

Translated title of the contribution: [Autom. eng. transl.] Spiritual care. Challenges and prospects for person-centred medicine

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] Spirituality plays an important role in shaping people's health. Beliefs and attitudes regarding well-being, lifestyles and behaviors, therapeutic decisions and adherence to treatments are in fact influenced by spiritual beliefs and religious faith. Furthermore, spirituality represents an essential resource for coping with illness, disability, trauma and loss of autonomy in the aging process. Despite this, the identification of spiritual needs is underestimated in the healthcare sector and spiritual assistance is still not sufficiently taken into consideration in healthcare contexts. Through the analysis of the most recent studies, the volume offers a survey of the literature evidence, operational strategies and methodological tools, proposing ideas and reflections for all scholars and professionals, in order to promote person-centred medicine.
