After Tony Bush had worked in a number of Australian States and overseas countries in numerous clinical roles, it became apparent to him that spirituality is common to all people, regardless of their background. In recent years, since completing postgraduate studies in palliative care, Tony has found it possible to develop a model of spiritual care for use not only in a clinical capacity but also in his personal life. This appreciation of existential aspects has reaffirmed his belief that spiritual care really does have a place in nursing curricula and that an exploration of such matters will encourage a student to undertake a personal journey of reflection not just as a nurse, but also as a person. At present Tony coordinates a postgraduate course in palliative care in which students are introduced to the topic of spirituality. This is a very popular aspect of the course which has led Tony to investigate some educational matters involved in facilitating the exploration of such a seemingly nebulous subject.
