WHAT IS ISPEC©?
The ISPEC© training course offers a unique opportunity for clinicians and chaplains from the same health setting to learn how to integrate spiritual care into patient care throughout their organization.
Facilitated by global leaders in the field of interprofessional spiritual care, a one-year mentorship is included in your registration to help you integrate spiritual care into your everyday practice and share what you’ve learned with your colleagues.
The ISPEC© training course provides a unique opportunity for clinicians and chaplain pairs from the same health setting to learn how to integrate spiritual care into patient care throughout their organization.
For Clinicians: Learn how to skillfully integrate spiritual care into your clinical practice and how to teach your colleagues basic concepts so they can offer this type of care, too.
For Chaplains: Work together with your clinician partner to teach and bring spiritual care to multiple touchpoints across your organization, so the ability to recognize and address spiritual distress becomes a standard part of patient care.
If you feel that addressing spiritual health is an important part of treating the patients you serve, join us at ISPEC© 2021. One clinician, one chaplain at a time, we can impact organizations and healthcare systems to offer this deeply beneficial care to the patients who need it most.
Co-led by Dr. Puchalski and Dr. Ferrell, ISPEC© is facilitated by global leaders in the field of spirituality & health.
We are grateful to the Kanarek Family Foundation for their support, which has allowed us to include expanded content dedicated to spiritual care training for those who are providing care to children and AYA patients.
