About this workshop
Presenter will provide research data results from student nurse surveys regarding the development of educational interventions for the call of teaching nurses to provide spiritual care during the COVID-19 pandemic crisis. Three theological pillars to be discussed include prevenient grace, the benefit of suffering, and the nurses’ holy vocation with supportive church documents, i.e. Salvifici Doloris, Gaudium Et Spes, Lumen Gentium, and Mulieris Dignitatem. This educational intervention was developed as part of the requirement for the St. Mary Seminary and Graduate School of Theology Doctor of Ministry program, near Cleveland, Ohio.
As a result of this workshop, participants will:
- Articulate the value of NACC Nurse-Chaplain Call Group and nurse-chaplain partnerships.
- Describe how to train and encourage nurses as partners in the provision of spiritual care.
- List the benefits vs. risks of nurses assisting in provision of spiritual care, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic.
