Introduction to Rogers’ Availability and Vulnerability Framework for Operationalising Spirituality

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


This chapter introduces Rogers’ Availability and Vulnerability framework which has been developed to help APNs operationalise spirituality. Spirituality is innately human and is influenced by the context we work in and how we emotionally engage with those in our care. Spirituality can be simply integrated into APN practice and operationalised through availability and vulnerability. Working in this way enables spirituality to be addressed on a practical level. Several examples from practice illustrate aspects of the framework.
