Exploring Heathcare Chaplaincy

There is a course starting Autumn 2021 designed for people who are wondering whether healthcare chaplaincy volunteering is for them. It is for those who are considering volunteering in a hospital or community healthcare setting and can also be valuable for those who are already volunteering. The course explores what it means to be part of a Healthcare Chaplaincy team in the 21st Century, where pastoral, spiritual and religious care is offered to patients and staff in a multi-faith-and-belief context.

The course is for people from different religions and beliefs, and offers an opportunity for the sharing of ideas and opinions across those religions and beliefs. The tutors are experienced healthcare chaplains from different religion and belief traditions.

The Autumn 2021 course will consist of four half-day sessions of talks and discussion using the Zoom platform:

1. Introducing Pastoral, Spiritual and Religious Care in Health. September 30th, 10am - 12.30pm

2. Understanding How We Use Ourselves in Healthcare Chaplaincy. October 21st. 10am - 12.30pm.

3. Ethical Principles and Practices in Healthcare Chaplaincy. November 11th. 10am - 12.30pm

4. Developing Professionalism, Equality, Diversity and Inclusion in Healthcare Chaplaincy. December 2nd, 10am - 12.30pm.

Course Tutors are Dr Jacqueline Watson (Non-religious Chaplain), Revd Meg Burton (Christian Chaplain).

The course is subsidised by NHS England and there is no fee. Applicants completing the course receive a Completion Certificate. Applications by September 1st to training@network-health.org.uk
