Spiritual support in Intensive Care

In this video,Iain Telfer draws on his many years' experience as a Chaplain in Intensive Care. He talks about the benefits of having someone to share your innermost worries about, regardless of faith or religion. He also talks about his role, when needed, as a "go between" with the doctors and nurses and individuals from other faiths or religions. Chaplaincy can continue to offer spriritual support once the patient has been transferrd to the general ward.
