Conversations in Ethics: Spiritual Beliefs in Miracles and the Use of Rituals

Tavernier, FL US
August 17, 2018

Healthcare providers, regardless of their beliefs, are “obliged to try to understand clearly the beliefs and the viewpoints of the patient,” according to the ACP Ethics Manual, 6th Edition. Studies have found that the number of Americans who believe in religious miracles increased by 22 percent in the past two decades. As we seek to provide compassionate care in our increasingly multicultural society, it is necessary to expand our knowledge and understanding of how miracles and rituals play an important part in the patients’ perception of care.

Please join us for this very informative and interactive Conversations in Ethics session on Spiritual Beliefs in Miracles and the Use of Rituals.

Target Audience

Physicians, Psychologists, Physician Assistants, Nurse Practitioners, Nurses, Social Workers, Respiratory Therapists, Clinical Chaplains, Pharmacists, Medical Students, Registered Dietitians and other interested healthcare professionals.
