CHPL 660 - Spiritual Care in a General Hospital (1)

This course explores the role of the spiritual care provider in the context of a general hospital. We will explore different disease processes, and how a diagnosis impacts the spiritual needs of a patient and their family. Issues of helplessness, dynamics of hope, exploration of family and inter-professional dynamics will be explored, along with caring for the hospital as your parish and strategies for communicating spiritual indicators with clinical team members will be examined.
