Chaplains have begun to recognize the limitations of one-size-fits-all narrative models for spiritual assessment. A team of Chicago-area Palliative Care chaplains participating in the Colemant Palliative Medicine Training Program developed a quantifiable model for assessing and recording unmet spiritual needs in patients receiving Palliative Care. We will describe the model, its conceptual foundations, and its development. Workshop participants will have the opportunity to use the model to assess unmet spiritual needs in a patient receiving Palliative Care. The strengths and weaknesses of the model, as well as areas for future research in spiritual assessment in Palliative Care, will be discussed.
Learning Objectives
• Describe the limitations of current approaches to Spiritual Assessment.
• Utilize a new model to quantitatively assess the unmet spiritual needs of Palliative Care patients.
• Evaluate the strengths, limitations of a quantifiable model for assessing unmet spiritual needs in patients in Palliative Care.

How It Works
To participate, all that is needed is a computer with Internet access and speakers, as the presentation audio and visuals are "webcast." Our webinars are priced per computer terminal, not per participant. That means you can invite as many colleagues to join you as can fit in your conference room or cluster around your computer. As a participant, you will be able to interact with the presenters, who will ask questions of the audience and answer questions posed by participants.
System Requirements
• As a best practice, we highly recommend an Ethernet connected computer for best connectivity and listening experience. You may experience some buffering of audio on lower bandwidth wireless connections.
• Internet Browsers:  Microsoft Internet Explorer 8 or later, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Safari, or Windows Edge browser.
• Stable Internet Connection, DSL or above:  100kbps for video transmission, 300kbps for screen sharing and remote control, 500kbps to ensure fluidity of all services.
• Operating System: Windows 7, Windows 8, or Windows 8.1, Windows 10, Mac OS X v10.4 or higher, Linux, Solaris.
• Adobe Flash Player 13.0 or newer:
• Computer Speakers
The link below will test your system to make sure you are running the most recent version of Adobe Flash Player and to make sure it is not being blocked by your network.
The "Connectivity" line should have a green check mark. If it does not please contact your network administrator to allow TelSpanWeb access to port RTMPE 1935. This will allow your Adobe Flash Player to run properly through TelSpanWeb. "Application Sharing" applies only to presenters, so if you see a red "X," that's OK.
If you have any further questions or concerns, or if you do not have computer speakers, please contact APC at for assistance.
You will receive an e-mail confirmation upon completion of the online registration and payment process. Instructions for logging into the webinar will be e-mailed to all participants two business days before the event.
Cancellation Policy
The registration fee (minus a $20 nonrefundable processing charge) will be refunded up to five (5) business days of the scheduled event. APC® reserves the right to cancel the program within five (5) business days of the scheduled event, if an insufficient number of people register.
