Spiritual care is now being recognised as an important component of palliative care.

How can we deliver spiritual care? How do we address this in a multi-cultural society like India? How does one take a spiritual history? What is the current state of research on this aspect?

The Bangalore Hospice Trust – Karunashraya is organizing a colloquium to seek answers to these questions and more. Prof. Santosh Chaturvedi and Prof. Prabha S Chandra of the National Institute of Mental Health and Neurosciences (NIMHANS) will direct the colloquium.

Dr. Christina Puchalski, Director of the George Washington Institute of Spirituality and Health, Washington DC, will be among the national and international experts who will be participating.

Venue: Hotel Fortune Select Trinity, Bengaluru, India.

Dates: February 10 and 11, 2015.
