Abstract

This paper will look at the contribution of the study of religious experience to developing spiritual care as part of the holistic care of patients. From the Alister Hardy Religious Experience Research Centre archives at the University of Wales, Lampeter, I have chosen some examples of accounts by health care professionals, which illustrate experiences related to care of the sick, and accounts by patients of experiences occurring during their illnesses. There is a growing awareness of the importance of attending to the spiritual needs of staff and patients, and I have looked at some of the literature on this subject, and at what is being done about spiritual care in the health services.
