2018 Caring for the Human Spirit Conference

Call for Workshop Proposals

Following on the success of its previous conferences, HealthCare Chaplaincy Network’s 5th annual Caring for the Human Spirit® Conference will attract a global audience of multidisciplinary professionals in the spiritual care field. It will feature more than 30 concurrent workshops and cutting-edge poster sessions, in addition to keynote and plenary addresses by renowned experts.

The conference is devoted to the presentation and discussion of best practices in clinical care, the latest research, and other topics related to the integration of spiritual care in health care.

We invite researchers, chaplains, nurses, social workers, doctors, patient experience officers, and other health care professionals to apply to present a 90-minute workshop. Workshops should be aimed at the advanced practitioner/researcher and should maximize dialogue with participants. Content should appeal to one or more of these disciplines: professional health care chaplains, nurses, social workers, researchers, administrators, patient experience officers, or others. Preference will be given to multidisciplinary teams.
