Health Care and Spirituality Coming Together
By Helen McNeal, Executive Director – CSU Institute for Palliative Care
I’m a baby boomer … and proud of it! We have changed the world in many ways. While the jury will probably be out for many years on the positive or negative impact on many things that we have done, I am convinced that there is at least one multi-dimensional gift that we have given that will have a lasting positive impact. We are changing the health care system in America.
Leaving aside the politics of Obamacare, over the next few articles, we’ll take a look at this gift and what it means. Some of the topics we’ll explore are how we are restoring choice to health care across the continuum of life, the rise and importance of self-empowerment, and today, we’ll look at how boomers are re-establishing the linkage between spirituality and health care.
