Abstract

The objective of this study was to explore Physician Assistants’ (PAs) attitudes and beliefs regarding the role of spirituality and religiosity (S/R) in patient care. Surveys were mailed to PAs who were members of the Kansas Academy of Physician Assistants. The majority of PAs, both self-reporting being and not being religious or spiritual also believe that they should be aware of patients’ S/R beliefs. However, less PAs, especially those who report not being religious or spiritual also believe that patients’ S/R should be discussed in the patient encounter.
