ELLIS, C. Pragmatic ethical approaches to evangelising in the medical encounter. SAJBL [online]. 2023, vol.16, n.3, pp.88-90. ISSN 1999-7639.

This paper describes the practical ethical issues and addresses some of the difficulties that arise at the interface between religion and the practice of medicine. Situations that arise between the physician and the patient concerning religious and spiritual beliefs are described. Approaches and caveats to offering religious opinions, instructions and evangelising in the medical encounter are proposed by the author.
