Webinar Description: Chaplains have begun to recognize the limitations of one-size-fits-all, narrative models for spiritual assessment. A team of Chicago-area palliative care chaplains participating in the Coleman Palliative Medicine Training Program are developing a quantifiable model for assessing and reporting unmet spiritual needs in patients receiving palliative care. We will describe the model, its conceptual foundations and its development. Workshop participants will have the opportunity to use the model to assess unmet spiritual needs in a patient receiving palliative care. The strengths and weaknesses of the model, as well as areas for future research in spiritual assessment in palliative care will be discussed.
