The newly established Oxford Centre for Spirituality and Wellbeing (OCSW) focuses on the development and dissemination of a more integrated and holistic model of care. OCSW generates practice-based evidence of the benefits of an integrated approach to care. Its research aims to underpin the development of training for staff so that they are equipped and supported in the provision of spiritual care. OCSW and the Department of Spiritual and Pastoral Care within Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust work collaboratively to implement an annual programme of events.
OCSW is part of the Oxford Institute of Nursing, Midwifery and Allied Health Research (OxINMAHR), a partnership led by Oxford Brookes University, whose purpose is to lead and participate in world-class research and evidence-based practice.
