4H: “Then & Now: The Evolution of End-of-Life Spiritual Assessments”

Edward Holland, MDiv, BA, BCC (ret), MFT (ret); Paul Galchutt, BCC

What is a spiritual assessment and why is it important? What has research taught us about the science and art of assessment? What are spiritual assessment “best practices” that meet regulatory requirements? This interactive workshop will address these questions and more.

By the end of the session, learners will be able to:

  • Trace the evolution of spiritual assessments in palliative & hospice care
  • Discuss & clarify current regulatory requirements about these assessments using examples of spiritual assessment tools
  • Implement & integrate a spiritual assessment process and tool that is clearly understood by your trans-disciplinary team and that meets regulatory requirements
