SHA'S CEO Cheryl Holmes is presenting on Looking back before rushing forward: Turning points in the development of Spiritual Care 

This presentation discusses creating a vision for the future which requires knowledge of the past (ensuring that we neither make the same mistakes, nor re-invent the wheel) and a deep understanding of and immersion in the current context. Cheryl will provide insights into the factors and influences that have shaped spiritual care through findings from her current PhD studies. It is proposed that these insights can inform future planning for the full integration of spiritual care in health care.
