Week Six: Impact of Religion and Spirituality on End of Life Care: Please note: Repp has added to the materials provided in the readings. Religion: -totality of belief systems; inner piety; abstract system of ideas; ritual practices; usually organized -religious thought 1 : the way that the human spirit positions itself in an ordered and meaningful universe in relation to the environment, to other human beings, and to deity (note that some people do not believe in deity, and so they position themselves to it as a non-entity). -This definition is from 1973; see as precursor to popular cultural ideology about ‘spirituality.’ Spirituality: -may or may not be linked to religious beliefs or communities that practice specific faith traditions -may be defined as the “actions and interactions of an embodied human actor who is facing death and creating a personally meaningful world” 2 -primary components: constructs of meaning or a sense of life’s purpose -another way to allow for self-transcendence

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
