Forlagets udgivne version, 261 KB, PDF-dokument
Background: Little is known about how the concept of spirituality is understood and applied by GPs.
Aim: To provide a detailed description of how GPs understand the concept of spirituality and apply this with patients.
Design & setting: Nineteen Scottish GPs were interviewed about their perceptions of the concept of spirituality and how they apply this in practice.
Method: An approach informed by grounded theory was used to identify and summarise common themes.
Results: Seven concepts concerning spirituality emerged, some of which are previously unrecognised. Four attitudes to spiritual care and four patterns of spiritual care were identified.
Conclusion: GPs have varying views on what spirituality is, and these relate partly to individual beliefs and experiences. These create considerable variation in the delivery of spiritual care.
