Patient Response: For me, suffering is a push towards knowing God more. As believers, we were spiritually and morally imperfect and it is our duty to strive towards understanding the Almighty more by growing beyond our suffering and having fellowship with God. Question: Great answer. I can see your life is built upon Christian views. It was very nice to have this conversation with you. I have learned quite a lot about you and your faith. I hope to see you soon as you continue to recover. Bye. Patient Response: Thank you too for the talk. Have a nice day. Part II: Analysis The interview engaged a middle-aged female Christian whose faith is deep in her religion.

SPIRITUAL NEEDS ASSESSMENT AND REFLECTION 5 the patient and not necessarily an interview. Moreover, it was a learning opportunity for different concepts about Christianity, their source of hope and strength as well as how the patient relates to God even during their ailing times. It was good for the management to allow for such an interview and assessment of the spiritual needs to be conducted within the institution. Also, it was good that the patient was cooperative enough to answer the interview questions as they provided information that is helpful in their spiritual assessment. The interview process faced some barriers but which did not inhibit the completion of the assessment tool. These barriers lie beyond the questions that could be asked to the patients regarding their spiritual life and why they trust in God. Moreover, the patient was still on the bed and this inhibited the time allocated to question her since she was required to have longer times to rest (Davis-Stofka, n.d.). These issues can be addressed by having to prepare the interview questions long ahead such that every detail required for the assessment tool can be included. Moreover, the selected interviewee should be flexible such that they can walk around the institution or sit at a different setting rather than within their hospital ward. Through such practices, more information can be gathered without a rush for better application in the intervention plan for the patient.

    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.
