Spiritual Health Association Quality Guidelines

The Guidelines for Quality Spiritual Care were developed to respond to the need to align spiritual care in health with the National Safety and Quality Health Service Standards, 2nd Edition (2017), the National Palliative Care Standards, 5th Edition (2018) and the National Consensus Conference Report: Enhancing Quality and Safety: Spiritual Care in health (2017).

The Guidelines for Quality Spiritual Care in Health (Guidelines) provide a framework to support a consistent approach to safe and high-quality spiritual care for patients, families, carers and staff. The context for the Guidelines is the acute and sub-acute health care setting inclusive of palliative care and mental health. Other health care settings may find these of use.
