Jump to Comments

Our own Professor, Wendy Cadge, was featured in Brandeis Now in regards to her new book which focuses on the issues of handling  faith behind the scenes in hospitals. wendy cadge

“The book takes readers inside major academic medical institutions to explore how today’s doctors and hospitals address prayer, religion and spirituality. From chapels to intensive care units to the morgue, hospital caregivers speak about how religion is part of their daily work in visible and invisible ways. Cadge shifts attention away from the ongoing controversy about whether or not faith and spirituality should play a role in health care and focuses on the many ways that these powerful forces function in healthcare today. She then asks: Are healthcare organizations supporting people whose spiritual and religious backgrounds are helping them deal with illness?”
