About this workshop
The Hear My Voice pilot study provided an innovative opportunity for individuals with an advanced disease to prepare a personal, printed spiritual legacy based on their beliefs, values, and life-learned wisdom in the context of a spiritual care relationship with a chaplain. This workshop will present rationale for the study and its methodology. Outcomes will include the results of questionnaires and quotes from patients of various spiritual and cultural backgrounds. Time will be allocated for the discussion of the importance of spiritual life review in research and clinical settings, and possible future applications.
As a result of this workshop, participants will:
- Describe the value of life review for patients, their loved ones, and the staff who care for them.
- List elements of the Hear My Voice pilot study and the methodology used, including the interview questions.
- Apply adaptations of the Hear My Voice study in future research and clinical practice.
