National Guidelines Implementation Tools
The National Guidelines for Spiritual Care in Aged Care are based on the principles of a whole-of-organisation approach, valuing relational care, affirming that spiritual care is everyone’s business, and that spiritual care is about growth and flourishing. The Guidelines put forward five domains of spiritual care, with ten outcomes under each domain:
1. Organisational leadership and alignment
2. Relationships and connectedness
3. Identifying and meeting spiritual needs
4. Ethical context of spiritual care
5. Enabling spiritual expression
The full text of the Guidelines and other supporting documents can be downloaded from this page.
To support members in the implementation of the National Guidelines for Spiritual Care in Aged Care, Meaningful Ageing Australia are developing tools that expand and give depth to each of the fifty Outcomes. These can be viewed in our Member’s Zone.
