Delivering quality spiritual care to palliative care patients requires both the chaplain as the specialist and involvement by the other members of the interdisciplinary team as spiritual care generalists.
The hundreds of health care professionals (chaplains, nurses, social workers, physicians, and others) who have completed these courses say that as a result they have significantly enhanced their knowledge and skills to deliver spiritual care in palliative care settings.
Each course is instructor-facilitated. Students who successfully complete the course receive a certificate of completion. (See below for explanation of difference between Certificate and Certification.)
The Spiritual Care Generalist Certificate is for professionals interested in becoming generalists in the area of spiritual care. To learn more about this certificate, click here.
