Spirituality is an important dimension of hospice and palliative care treatment. Patients often report that religious beliefs and practices are powerful sources of comfort, hope, and meaning, particularly in coping with illness. Addressing the human spirit is part of the person-centric continuum of care. Practitioners are reminded to support and utilize the patient’s own spiritual resources to enhance care in advanced illness and end of life care.
