This webinar focuses on the role of the chaplain in helping to identify spiritual issues from the unique perspective of oncology patients, including 1) control and powerlessness, 2) changing sense of self, 3) isolation from self, others and God, 4) positive and negative meaning-making.

The oncology chaplain's relationship with patients and families is unique in that it often lasts for extended period of time over the course of the illness. This webinar will equip chaplains to recognize and provide effective spiritual care over the course of the illness. The chaplain's role may have to adapt as patients' concerns change through each stage of the disease process: Initial diagnosis, ongoing treatment, relapse, and end-of-life.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this 90-minute webinar, participants will be able to:

1. Provide in-depth spiritual assessments of oncology patients at different points in their disease process (30 min)
2. Develop enhanced plans of chaplaincy care unique to oncology patients (30 min)
3. Establish a collaborative relationship with other members of the oncology interdisciplinary team (20 min)
