In the previous chapter, the focus has been on spiritual care assessment and planning in order to assess spiritual needs and resources. In this chapter, we focus on the required competences for nurses/midwives in spiritual care intervention and evaluation within a caring, compassionate relationship. This chapter is concerned with this competence and aims to expand and discuss these requirements in the context of nursing/midwifery practice.
