Dr Calvin J. Lightbody

A discussion with Rev Tricia Johnston, hospital chaplain, about spiritual pain. We examine what spiritual care is and how it is particularly relevant for patients who are nearing the end of life.
Focusing on purely physical aspects of pain can overlook this important cause of anguish. Some guidance on recognising spiritual pain is provided along with some tips on addressing an issue that for many can take us out of our comfort zones.
