The Essence of Spiritual Care is a free learning module to support health professionals develop their understanding of spiritual care.

SHA in partnership with Palliative Care Australia (PCA) has developed The Essence of Spiritual Care, the first in a series of e-learning modules on spirituality in health and palliative care designed especially for health care workers. 

All health professionals, working in any care setting are encouraged to better understand spiritual care, not only for the people and families in their care, but for their own wellbeing.
