    THE NECESSITY OF SPIRITUAL CARE TOWARDS THE END OF LIFE
  • Author: Abbas, Syed ; Panjwani, Sibtain
  • Description: This introductory essay seeks to convey the message that spirituality is a core human concern at the time of death. People may feel physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual distress as they near the end of their life. However, not enough weight is placed on the way in which a human being can cope with these different states by accessing and understanding their spirituality. We argue that it is prudent to gain some understanding of patients' spirituality early on, as it would be difficult to accomplish this solely near the time of death. Ultimately, there is a need to carry out more research on the complexities surrounding patients' spiritual mechanisms toward the end of their life so that they may better understand themselves beforehand and cope with the fact of death.
