Spiritual care is one of four core disciplines which set hospice care apart as truly wholistic and interdisciplinary. Yet few hospice programs have dedicated the resources needed to develop and maintain an excellent spiritual care department. Further, many hospice programs lack the internal expertise to identify gaps and establish best practices. This webinar will help develop the road map needed to ensure your agency provides the necessary and essential end-of-life spiritual support to patients and their families.
AFTER THIS WEBINAR YOU’LL BE ABLE TO:
- Identify the best candidates for chaplain positions
- Establish metrics for hiring and productivity
- Fully integrate spiritual care into the interdisciplinary group (IDG) and care plan process
- Design programs to develop and support chaplain excellence
- Equip nurses and social workers to collaborate more effectively with chaplains
Hospice care is designed to be wholistic and interdisciplinary. Most hospices employ nurses, social workers, and chaplains to meet regulatory requirements. But all too often, spiritual care is an afterthought. The chaplain’s role in the IDG is often peripheral, position requirements are not always well-defined, and there may be few organizational resources dedicated to the support and development of this discipline. Yet, the religious, spiritual, and existential aspects of the dying process are profoundly important. How can you assess whether your hospice program is serving the spiritual needs of its clients? What are the markers of a well-developed spiritual care department? Learn how to help patients and families achieve a peaceful end-of-life closure, while increasing patient and family satisfaction, assisting service recovery, engaging with community partners, and retaining your best employees.
