This study examined the differences between hospice social workers, nurses, and spiritual care professionals in their provision of spiritual care to hospice patients and families. An instrument adapted for this study, "The Spiritual Care in Hospice Survey," was used to measure provision of spiritual care. The instrument was sent to a nationwide sample of hospice professionals. One-Way Analysis of Variance and the Least Significant Difference multiple comparison procedure were computed and indicated significant differences in the scores of all three groups.
