2018 Conference - Building a Spiritual Care Team in Clinical Care

Walt Larimore; The increasingly stressful healthcare environment limits clinicians’ ability to provide whole-person care that considers the physical, psychological, social, and spiritual needs of those with chronic disabling illness. Spiritual care teams have been shown to help clinicians stay efficient and provide quality spiritual care at the same time in a wide variety of inpatient and outpatient, secular and faith-based care environments. In this seminar, the author of CMDA's popular Grace Prescriptions course will describe an exciting way for Christian health professionals to form teams to provide whole-person care in most any healthcare environment and the capacity to increase the quality of patient care.
