Journal Article (Journal Article;Review)
Assessment of spiritual suffering and provision of spiritual care are a central component of palliative care (PC).

This article, written by a group of spiritual care providers, and other PC and hospice clinicians, offers a more in-depth look at religion and spirituality to help to enhance readers' current skills while offering a practical roadmap for screening for spiritual distress and an overview of partnering with colleagues to ensure patients receive values-aligned spiritual care provision.
