The workshop will also discuss how Care Conferences can impact Patient and Family Experience Scores.
As a result of this workshop, participants will:
- Share the construction of a Research Project on changing the way Care Conferences are conducted and the experience and requirements of forming a research project in Chaplaincy.
- Discuss the Care Conference and its impact on Patient and Family Experience Scores.
- Help Chaplains understand the formation and execution of Chaplaincy based research.
