Book Chapter

O. Carter Snead & Michael Moreland, Law, Religion, and the Physician-Patient Relationship, in Spirituality and Religion within the Culture of Medicine: From Evidence to Practice 293 (Dr. Michael Balboni and Dr. John Peteet eds., 2017).

Spirituality and Religion Within the Culture of Medicine provides a comprehensive evaluation of the relationship between spirituality, religion, and medicine evaluating current empirical research and academic scholarship.

Recognizing the interdisciplinary aspects of spirituality, religion, and health, the book turns to academic scholarship outside the field of medicine to consider cultural dimensions that form clinical practice. Social-scientific, practical, and humanity fields include psychology, sociology, anthropology, law, history, philosophy, and theology. This is the first time in a single volume that readers can reflect on these multi-dimensional, complex issues with contributions from leading scholars.

This book will provide trainees and clinicians with an introduction to the field of spirituality, religion, and medicine, and its multi-disciplinary approach will give researchers and scholars in the field a critical and up-to-date analysis
