Publisher's description: 
Spirituality, Ethics and Care aims to provide guidance  on how to integrate spirituality and ethics in professional and voluntary care. The author  argues that the strong connections between moral meaning and spirituality are often not reflected  in the health and social care literature. Often spirituality is seen as religion and religion  is seen as independent of ethical decision-making, unless you happen to be working  with a patient or carer who wishes to assert their religious rights. In this book,  the author seeks to develop a broader view of spirituality and explore how this can be applied  to ethics and morals in health and social care practice.
