The Christian approach to whole-person medicine

J R Coll Gen Pract. 1989 Apr;39(321):166.


A working party with representatives from the Royal College of General Practitioners and the Churches' Council for Health and Healing has produced a report on the Christian approach to whole-person medicine. This emphasizes the importance of including the spiritual dimension of man in health care problems and urges closer cooperation between health care professionals and Christian ministers. Some of the difficulties inherent in this approach are highlighted in this paper and some proposals for further progress outlined.
