Hospice chaplains come in all shapes, sizes, and denominations. One thing that is consistent is that you never know what you will encounter with patients and families. Therefore, it’s important to keep developing, refreshing, and honing your skills, and to stay aware of national trends and changing needs. Don’t miss this opportunity to get expert insight from a presenter who was a chaplain himself.


  • Understand industry trends and their impact on the hospice chaplain’s role
  • Connect with the larger community of hospice chaplains
  • Demonstrate and communicate the value of chaplaincy in your organization
  • Effectively collaborate with and support your team
  • Skillfully assess and address spiritual distress and spiritual needs
  • Engage in creative self-care to ensure your continued ability to serve

WEBINAR DETAILS: There are nationwide industry trends shaping what hospice looks like and directly impacting the role of the hospice chaplain. To remain a vital part of an organization’s mission, and to provide the best quality support to the team, patients, and families, it is critically important for chaplains to adapt and grow to meet the changing needs.
