Research shows that religious or spiritual (R/S) struggle negatively impacts quality of life for patients. Chaplains need to communicate the importance of screening for R/S struggle to provide good stewardship. The workshop will describe the experience of the use of screening tools by one hospital’s engaging staff for all patients as part of the intake recorded in the Electronic Medical Record. Finally, the workshop will report on research which best detects patients who are actually experiencing spiritual struggle.
As a result of this workshop, participants will:
- Learn the impact of using a screener and its importance for patients.
- Identify aspects of a process for leading hospital personnel to include a screener as standard protocol for patients.
- Use evidence-based research to select a screener.
