About this workshop
Professional chaplains often find themselves participating in or even leading their organization’s ethics committee and/or consultation service. But how many feel truly prepared for that kind of work, in a world where the issues grow more and more complex? Few chaplains have the luxury of advanced education in this area, but they can develop both a structure and a set of principles to guide them … and their colleagues … to better serve both the health care institution and their patients. This interactive session will jump-start participants’ ability to contribute more fully to difficult situations.
As a result of this workshop, participants will:
- Describe a basic structure to use in approaching ethical issues.
- Articulate key principles used by professional chaplains to contribute to the resolution of complex ethical situations.
- Animate confidence participating in formal ethics consultations.
