Spirituality is undergoing a revival in relation to clinical practice across many health disciplines and is an emerging area of clinical practice. Currently, there is no consensus that reflects a coherent understanding of what spirituality means across different health professions. It is being proposed in this article that health professionals use definitions for spirituality cautiously, until an adequate understanding of the connection between health and spirituality has been addressed. It is suggested that a working definition for spirituality in health-care practice should emerge from research that considers a client's spiritual need, experience and journey. The emphasis of this article is to consider how spirituality can unfold in a health-care context.
