Your Health: A Sacred Matter Previous Broadcasts

KQED World: Sat, Dec 2, 2017 -- 5:00 PM

This 2-part program explores how religion, spirituality and health care interrelate. The program weaves together compelling individual stories from doctors, patients, nurses, chaplains and caregivers who speak to the benefits of incorporating a patient's spirituality as part of a whole-patient/whole-person model of care. It examines how the medical profession is not only looking to the origins of medicine in order to move forward, by re-integrating religiously based tenets into the healing process, but also responding to contemporary research findings that support earlier accepted wisdom.
The film's interviewees provide a representative sampling of the leading medical schools, teaching hospitals and research centers across the nation recognized for their work in this field. The film also follows a variety of people in the field who are learning to integrate the whole-person model of care. In 2016, it won the International Award of Excellence in the category of "Documentary Feature" at the International Film Festival for Spirituality - Religion - Visionary in Jakarta, Indonesia.
