Even though all health care professionals should provide some spiritual care, most are not trained to do so in-depth. While patients do not typically expect to receive in-depth, specialized spiritual care from their physicians or nurses, they do express a strong preference for some basic spiritual care, including listening, communicating and expressing compassion. Studies consistently demonstrate that a high percentage of patients wish their health care providers would ask about or discuss spirituality and/or religion.
