Evidence Based Approach to the Impact of Spirituality on Health

Jonathan Wilson, MD

Room 5

Does modern medicine eliminate or ignore the place for personal spirituality and spiritual care? Is there evidence that spirituality, and Biblical spiritual disciplines in particular, has an affect on health outcomes? This session will first look at current evidence surrounding the effect of spirituality on health. The second half will provide practical tools that will empower you to address spiritual health in your patients through integrated approaches that will help lead to true transformation of their health and their lives. This workshop is appropriate for providers and support staff at all levels.
