Spirituality, religion, and culture play an important role in health and healing. Health care systems and health care professionals must recognize and understand a variety of spiritual and religious values, beliefs, and practices and their impact on health and healing.
To meet the needs of a spiritually and culturally diverse client population, today's health care system is evolving in its approach. Knowledgeable providers who can deliver compassionate, effective care and meet their clients' and patients' spiritual needs are in dramatically increasing demand. To gain a broad understanding of spirituality, health, and healing and to stay current with emerging trends, health professionals who work with diverse religious and spiritual populations will need continuing professional education.
