It is not unusual for territorial tensions to exist between chaplains and nurses. Yet recent research findings indicate that spiritual care provided by the health care team can produce positive outcomes for patients. It behooves chaplains to understand how nurses think and act with regard to spiritual care, so that they can collaborate with and support nurses in learning more about supporting patients' spiritual well-being. This presentation, provided by a nurse educator with chaplaincy training, will address how chaplains can work more effectively with nurses.

1.Identify reasons why chaplains should collaborate with nurses to provide spiritual care to persons with illness.

2. Understand how nurses perceive spirituality and spiritual care, and how they respond to professional mandates for spiritual care.

3. Obtain curricular content that is important for chaplains to include in staff education for nurses.

Who should attend: chaplains working in health care contexts
