Nursing Networking Cafe
Prayer, Healthcare, and Pandemic: Spiritual Support for and by Nurses
Join a conversation on how prayer can support nurses and patients during this time of pandemic. Dr. Reimer-Kirkham (Dean of Nursing at Trinity Western University) will draw on her recently published book, Prayer as Transgression? The Social Relations of Prayer in Healthcare Settings, that provides insight into how prayer and spirituality “show up” in hospitals in London England and Vancouver Canada. Dr. Elizabeth Johnston Taylor (Professor of Nursing at Loma Linda University) will explore the question, during the COVID-19 pandemic, should nurses offer to pray with patients? Charlene Neufeld (spiritual health practitioner) will respond to Sheryl and Elizabeth, with reflections from the vantage point of a spiritual health practitioner.
We invite nurses, nursing students, spiritual care practitioners, and other healthcare professionals and interested community members to join us for this online Café.
