Abstract

Spirituality is a central principle in complementary and alternative medical prac tice. Important spiritual issues, which are personal to the patient as well as to the practitioner, can be taught and modeled. This article describes a lecture and small group-based curriculum that can be adapted to teach spirituality. Medical and nursing students were jointly taught using this curriculum. They learned to take a spiritual history using one of three models, to reflect on clinical and personal situations involving spirituality, and to present evidence on the clinical relevance of spirituality. Samples from the syllabus including cases and references are presented.
