Summary of "Spiritual care by nurses in curative oncology: a mixed-method study on patients' perspectives and experiences."

Spirituality can be important in adjusting to the experience of cancer and its medical treatment. Since nurses have frequent contact with patients, they seem to have a unique role in providing spiritual care. Nurses consider spiritual care important; however, little is known about how patients in a curative setting experience and value spiritual care. Therefore, this study aimed to give insight into patients' experiences with and opinions about spiritual care as provided by nurses in curative cancer care.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Nurses who provide nursing care in countries other than the ones in which they received their training.

Nurses whose work combines elements of both primary care nursing and public health practice and takes place primarily outside the therapeutic institution. Primary nursing care is directed to individuals, families, or groups in their natural settings within communities.

Health personnel who do not hold professional degrees or credentials, but have completed training and are licensed to provide routine patient care under the direction of registered nurses and physicians.

Specialized health care, supportive in nature, provided to a dying person. A holistic approach is often taken, providing patients and their families with legal, financial, emotional, or spiritual counseling in addition to meeting patients' immediate physical needs. Care may be provided in the home, in the hospital, in specialized facilities (HOSPICES), or in specially designated areas of long-term care facilities. The concept also includes bereavement care for the family. (From Dictionary of Health Services Management, 2d ed)

Mystical, religious, or spiritual practices performed for health benefit.
