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.
