Dieses Buch bildet dazu ein Gegengewicht und betont die Rückbesinnung auf den Patienten als ganzheitlichen Menschen, dem neben medizinischer und pflegerischer Fachkompetenz auch mit spiritueller Begleitung Linderung verschafft werden kann.Der Leidende mit seinen Ängsten, Hoffnungen und seiner Zuversicht und der Helfende mit seinem fachlichen knowledge und seinem menschlichen Handeln stehen im Blickfeld aller Beiträge. Sie geben Einblick in die unterschiedlichen Perspektiven der Disziplinen und versuchen herauszufinden, wie unter den gegebenen Umständen eine menschliche und allumfassende Versorgung von Kranken – im Sinne des Betroffenen – realisiert werden kann. Ausgehend vom biblischen Bild des guten Samariters, befassen sich die Autoren mit der Suche nach Antworten, wie einem Kranken unter den realen Gegebenheiten unseres Versorgungssystems bestmögliche Hilfe gewährt werden kann:Wie kann angesichts von Krankheit und Leid die interdisziplinäre Aufgabe des Heilens und Helfens gelingen?Welche Bedeutung haben religiöser Glaube und persönliche Spiritualität im Heilungsgeschehen?Ist eine derart umfassende Sorge ökonomisch-organisatorisch finanzier-  und vertretbar? Für Pflegende, Ärzte, Soziale Dienste und Wissenschaftler der Fachgebiete. Aber auch interessierte Psychologen, Sozialarbeiter und Mitarbeiter im Krankenpastoral, für die Spiritualität ein Baustein in der Begleitung Kranker ist, finden hier Impulse für ihre Arbeit.„SALVIFICI DOLORIS - Dem Gutes tun, der leidet“ – unter  diesem Motto trafen sich im Frühjahr 2013 auf der internationalen Tagung zum Welttag der Kranken Wissenschaftler und Praktiker aus den Professionen der Pflege, Medizin, Theologie, Seelsorge, Gesundheitswirtschaft, um sich auszutauschen und Handlungsanleitungen für die Zukunft der Krankenversorgung in unserer Gesellschaft zu entwickeln.
