60 minutes (1 CE hour, plus reading/self-study hours - Methodology 8, Research)

Chaplains commonly document their visits in the Electronic Health Record (EHR), and little is known about the types of information included in chaplains’ narrative documentation. The article for this webinar reports the results of a qualitative study of the content of six chaplains’ narrative chart notes in a neuroscience-spine intensive care unit. Documentation can both describe personalized chaplaincy care provided to patients, as well as contribute to a team approach to whole-person care. In addition to data about explicit religious beliefs and practices, data about other themes in the chaplains’ free-text will be discussed, including documentation about the patient’s family. Using inductive content analysis, over 400 free-text notes from an 18-month period were examined with free-text excerpts providing informative examples. 
 
Aims for reading this article through the Webinar Journal Club:
  1. To examine the contribution of free-text narrative documentation by chaplains in a neuroscience-spine ICU.
  2. To explore informative examples of free-text documentation.
  3. To help chaplains develop and maintain research literacy, including the ability to critically read research and, where appropriate, apply the findings in their professional practice.

Format: This APC-sponsored course is presented as five 60-minute webinar sessions from 1-2pm CDT (click on each date to learn more about the content of that session). While there is a common theme for all the articles in the series, each session will be complete in itself, so participants may register for one, several or all five sessions.
 
Audience: The series is designed to help chaplains with no prior experience learn to read and understand research. It will also introduce research-literate chaplains to important research that will inform their chaplaincy practice and their ability to advocate for its benefits.

The aims of the WJC are:
  1. To provide participants with resources that can help them critically reflect upon and advance their chaplaincy practice.
  2. To provide participants with resources that can help them advocate for the importance of chaplaincy care.
  3. To help chaplains develop and maintain research literacy, including the ability to critically read research and where appropriate apply the findings in their professional practice.

Preparation: The articles selected for the series will be available prior to the webinar sessions and participants are strongly encouraged to read them, and complete their own summary review of the studies, in preparation for the webinar. A form will be provided to help participants’ create their own summary reviews.


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."

The Webinar Journal Club is 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 answer questions posed by participants.

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 Explorer 7 or higher (Windows), Firefox 4 or higher, Google Chrome 2 or higher, Safari 4 or higher.
  • A 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 XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, Mac OS X v10.4 or higher, Linux, Solaris.
  • Adobe Flash Player 10.3 or newer: http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer
  • Computer Speakers (for participants listening over the computer)

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.

Please click the following System Test link: http://web.telspan.com/systemcheck 

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 info@professionalchaplains.org for assistance.
