Abstract

This article discusses the concept of spirituality within palliative care. It considers aspects of religion and creativity in relation to spirituality, which may be inter-related as well as being significant in their own right. The nurse's role within the interdisciplinary team is explored. The expertise required as well as the emotional effect on nurses offering spiritual support is described.
