SHA launches The Future of Spiritual Care in Australia Report

Spiritual Health Association (SHA) is excited to announce the successful launch of their latest report: The Future of Spiritual Care in Australia: a national study on spirituality, wellbeing and spiritual care in hospitals. The report was formally launched by Dr Amanda Walker, Clinical Director at the Australian Commission for Safety and Quality in Health Care, at an online event held on Wednesday 18th May 2022.

In launching the report, Amanda was clear that “spiritual care is not an optional extra” if we are to provide care that fulfils the requirements of the Comprehensive Care Standard. We are pleased to provide you with a copy of the report as attached. We are also pleased to provide a link to the video, Collective Voice which brings to life the direct quotes gathered from participants in the research.

SHA’s CEO Cheryl Holmes also presented, stating “we did this study because we want to make sure that the spiritual care we are advocating for, is spiritual care that is fit for purpose in the Australian context. We know that Australia is a culturally and spiritually diverse nation, and the way we talk about spirituality and spiritual care needs to use language that is meaningful to people”.
