Documenting Patient Care

The work we do has to be documented, and there is considerable demand for guidance on how to apply this to spiritual care.

Spiritual Care assessment is an area of constant interest, and contributing to this section to share what we have used or developed can be a great help.

Having made our assessment, how do we act in response to what we find, and how do we record this as part of the multi-disciplinary team’s care planning? There is ample scope for development in this area. And how effective are we in what we do? We would be interested not only in sample evaluation sheets, but some indication of the feedback received and how the evaluations were conducted.
