Praying with patients

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Studies have found that patients would like their physicians to pray with them, but many physicians might be uncomfortable doing so. Physicians should always take their lead from their patients in whether they pray or not and the type of prayer that is said, but physicians should not be reluctant to seek assistance from chaplains or other clergy if they are uncomfortable with praying aloud or if they are unfamiliar with a particular patient's faith tradition.
