Canadian Nurses Association Position Statement on Spirituality, Health and Nursing Practice
June 2010, CNA issued their position statement on Spirituality, Health and Nursing Practice. The initiative behind this statement was the resolution put forward by PNIG at RNAO's AGM in April 2004, that "spiritual well-being be included in the WHO definition of Health". Dr. June Webber, Director, Department of International Policy and Development, CNA brought this issue to the attention of the International Council of Nurses (ICN).
