Religion or Belief

Religious and spiritual values can be an important part for patients coping with their cancer diagnosis.  Spiritual and religious beliefs, cultural practices and values can shape how our patients decisions are made and ho their needs can be met.  

Spiritual wellbeing can also be a factor in emotional strength, therefore having access to these services will help healthcare professionals support individuals effectively.
