Spiritual care in 21st century Aotearoa New Zealand healthcare: Hastings

What is spiritual care, and how can we do it better? With spirituality being central to the wellbeing of all people, particularly Māori and Pacific, and 20 per cent of our population being actively religious, spiritual care is important for many people facing serious health issues. This can include discussing fears, and trying to find meaning in life and death.

To understand what this means for our evolving healthcare system, we need to consult with people and whānau about the best ways for them to access spiritual care.

This talk will present up-to-date research, and give healthcare professionals and the public the chance to have their say.

Refreshments will be available.

This event will also be held in other cities on the following dates:
