(1) Purpose: To assess the effectiveness of an evidence-based web-TV patient education intervention on patient perception of the degree to which spiritual needs are met over the course of inpatient hospitalization. (2) Methods: Patients admitted to Greenwich Hospital will be randomly assigned to control or experimental groups (250 participants in each group; power=1 for small effect size; p=.05) at a 160-bed community hospital in Connecticut. The intervention is an evidenced-based web-TV program that includes information on the following: A brief overview of spiritual care, obtaining spiritual care at Greenwich Hospital, weekly mass schedule, communion distribution, contacting personal religious providers, contacting the hospital chaplain, pastoral visits, directions to the chapel, contacting transport services. Participants in the control group will be shown a web-TV program that includes information on general hospital services. The degree to which perceived spiritual needs have been met will be measured using the Press Ganey National Patient Satisfaction Survey Questions related to spiritual needs. (3)Results/Conclusions: NA (study not completed). Baseline mean score for satisfaction with spiritual needs being met at proposed site is 87.2% (Goal 95 %). (4) Implications for nursing practice and knowledge development in nursing. Addressing spiritual needs of hospitalized patients related to religion, meaning, love and belonging, morality, and death and dying has been identified as an important component of holistic nursing care. Those who experience spiritual needs while hospitalized indicate that their needs could have been better met if they received education regarding the availability of hospital services designed to address these needs (Reed, 1997). Currently there is a paucity of known methods to systematically address spiritual needs of patients in a way that can be incorporated into the busy work flow of patient care units.
