HealthCare Chaplaincy NetworkTM’s 2015 Conference: A Great Success!
The 2nd annual Caring for the Human Spirit® Conference was a tremendous success. The nearly 400 participants attending the three-day event in person participated in keynote addresses, plenaries, workshops and considerable opportunities for peer-to-peer networking that truly advanced the integration of spiritual care in health care.
"HealthCare Chaplaincy NetworkTM’s 2nd Annual Caring for the Human Spirit® Conference Was a Milestone Event in Advancing the Integration of Spiritual Care in Health Care Internationally"
The featured speakers at the April 20-22 conference at the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando said that spiritual care is at a critical juncture, noting that its significance as part of overall wellness is increasingly being recognized and the field is now poised to make major inroads toward fully integrating spiritual care into health care in the U.S. and globally.
Emphasizing this, Christina M. Puchalski, MD, FACP, Founder and Director of the George Washington Institute for Spirituality and Health (GWish), said, "Spirituality should be considered one of the vital signs in the care and treatment of patients.”
