Show Notes

This week we are joined by Nancy Hermsen from Central Adelaide Local Health Network (CALHN)!

Together we discuss the crucial role of spiritual care in healthcare, particularly for patients facing unexpected diagnoses and for stressing the importance of understanding patients' needs, values, and beliefs. Nancy highlights the emotional aspects of healthcare, whilst addressing the complexities of family dynamics and patient advocacy.

Additionally, we discuss advocating for third-party facilitation to enhance communication. Nancy explores how spiritual care helps patients connect with medical teams and find meaning, whether through religion, nature, or personal connections. In this episode you will hear how patients share impactful stories, emphasising introspection, reconnection, and the significance of addressing unsolved issues and expressing love before death.
