Saline Solution


Do you have questions about faith at work? Every Christian health professional has a unique opportunity to improve their patients' physical and spiritual health, but many feel frustrated by the challenge of integrating faith and practice within time constraints and legal obligations.

However, the medical literature increasingly recognises the important link between spirituality and health (1) and GMC guidelines approve discussion of faith issues with patients at their invitation, done appropriately and sensitively (2).

In our contact with patients we are called to be 'the salt of the earth' - flavouring life with grace and truth. Saline Solution is designed to help Christian healthcare professionals bring Christ into everyday work. It has helped hundreds become more comfortable and adept at practising medicine that addresses the needs of the whole person.

The course is aimed at helping us encourage patients in a natural way one step closer to a relationship with God, through recognising God-given opportunities to touch them with his love with due respect and sensitivity.
