The Chaplain on the Spiritual Care Team


This webinar was streamed to a live audience at the Bytwerk Theater at Calvin College in Grand Rapids, MI on May 29, 2015 as part of the 2015 CRC Chaplains Conference.

Description: This webinar explores the broad topic of addressing spirituality in patient care, describes the rationale and research that justifies doing so, and examines a “spiritual care team” model that seeks to do this in outpatient and inpatient settings. Of particular focus will be the members of the spiritual care team and their roles (physician, spiritual care coordinator, chaplain, social worker, and office or ward staff). Special attention will be given to the role of the chaplain on the spiritual care team, what the chaplain needs from other team members, and what the chaplain provides to the team.

Presenter: Harold G. Koenig, MD, MHSc is board certified in general psychiatry, and formerly in family medicine, geriatric medicine, and geriatric psychiatry. He is Professor of Psychiatry and Associate Professor of Medicine at Duke University, and is an Adjunct Professor in the Department of Medicine at King Abdulaziz University, Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, and in the School of Public Health at Ningxia Medical University, Yinchuan, China.
