The NACC hosted several special webinars in 2017, outside of the scope of its regular series. Access to the recordings may still be purchased – please see below for details.
Presented by Gordon Hilsman, DMin, BCC-SNACC member Gordon Hilsman, DMin, BCC-S, has recently published Spiritual Care in Common Terms: How Chaplains Can Effectively Describe the Spiritual Needs of Patients in Medical Records; the book is available at this LINK.
It has received excellent reviews from many clinicians, including Dr. Christina Puchalski who wrote:
Spirituality of patients is an essential domain of whole-person care. Patients often suffer in silence; that suffering or spiritual distress must be recognized and treated. Professional chaplains are essential members of the healthcare team. It is critical that they communicate verbally and in the chart note the spiritual needs of the patient, how they are addressing that need and what outcomes the team should look for to help the patient heal. Spiritual Care in Common Terms offers the language and format for chaplains to communicate this clinical aspect of spiritual care that can be understood in the reductionist clinical framework but keeps the patient’s inner narrative in the forefront of their care for all members to provide compassionate care for our patients. This is a must-read for not only chaplains but for other members of the interdisciplinary team.
At the request of the NACC, Gordon lead a book review series of four one-hour webinar sessions which gave participants the opportunity to read and process the book with Gordon. The participants could purchase the book in advance. The four sessions covered the content of the six chapters. This series aimed to provide the beginning, learning, and seasoned chaplain an opportunity to refine her/his theory and practice of documentation. Access to the recordings of these four sessions is available at a cost of $30, which includes all four sessions (but does not include the book – you are responsible for obtaining a copy yourself).
This series provides 10 CEH’s. The CEH Certificate may be downloaded here:

Presented by Dr. Christopher De Bono, PhD, MDivWhat does Medical Assistance in Dying (AKA Euthanasia and Assisted Suicide) look like in Canada? And what does it mean for the Catholic Health Care community in Canada? And beyond? This workshop provides the critical historical context on MAiD, but focuses primarily on the tensions as well as opportunities that MAiD represents in both acute and residential care settings. Clinical, ethical and pastoral theological lenses are brought to bear on the phenomenon.
