Shenandoah University and Valley Health are sponsors of a one-day conference titled Spirituality: Weaving Wholeness Into Healthcare on October 27th, 2010 in Winchester, Virginia.
Recent research has demonstrated improved patient outcomes when spirituality is incorporated into medical practice. Yet, addressing spirituality is often neglected. It may be overshadowed by the challenges of time constraints and prioritizing care, and many health care providers simply do not have the comfort level, specific tools or skills needed to incorporate spirituality into the hectic pace of modern day healthcare delivery. This full day, regional conference provides the knowledge, skills and tools for addressing patients’ spiritual needs for best practices in any health care setting.
The keynote speaker will be Christina M. Puchalski, MD, MS, FACP, founder and executive director of George Washington Institute for Spirituality and Health. Discounted registration is available through September 7th.
