Let’s add science to health-care chaplaincy without losing its art

Linda Emanuel writes at the Washington Post: “We need to know how often people feel spiritually abandoned while in the arms of medical care. We need to know how to measure what matters, when chaplains should be asked to consult, what chaplains should be trained to look for, and how to respond based on the data. Health care chaplaincy researchers have begun to mobilize to capture the science of chaplaincy care.

It’s a sacred task whose time has come.” MORE.
