UK: NHS Doctors and Nurses to undergo '£950 diploma in spirituality Course by Idowu Olabode : June 04, 2017, 04:38:30 PM
NHS doctors and nurses are to be offered spirituality lessons in an attempt to give patients more compassionate care.

Staff will be able to qualify in the subject with a diploma approved by Government exams watchdog Ofqual.

The four-day training will teach healthcare professionals how to improve their bedside manner and encourage patients to have more meaningful lives.

Course leader William Bloom, who describes himself as a mind-body-spirit teacher, said: ‘The course has nothing to do with religion – it’s about showing people how to connect more with other human beings.’

GP Stuart Kempster says the course, which costs from £950 and will run this autumn at The Crossfields Institute, Stroud, has helped him enjoy a better relationship with his patients.

The retired 65-year-old said: ‘The training made me more open so patients were able to ask my advice about issues around spirituality, and it was comforting for those who were terminally ill.’

Chaplains are already accredited by the NHS to provide spiritual guidance to patients and staff.

NHS trusts have a duty under the Equality Act 2010 to be mindful of someone’s spiritual beliefs and identity.
