In restoring or bringing healing to a person’s physical wellbeing, the patient’s own internal resources and spiritual worldview/framework play a vital role in their holistic care. How do Health care professionals assist patients in making meaning of sickness, suffering and health care? The webinar will be streamed live through zoom so anyone can register and watch the event online too. 


Health Care intrinsically contributes to a person’s spiritual wellbeing. In restoring or bringing healing to a person’s physical wellbeing, the patient’s own internal resources and spiritual worldview/framework play a vital role in their holistic care. How do Health care professionals including Chaplains / Spiritual Care Workers assist patients in making meaning of sickness, suffering and health care?

This is a great opportunity for attendees to understand how providing effective spiritual care in making meaning potentially leads to better health outcomes, and how spiritual care intersects and is interwoven with other aspects of health care in providing Person centred care. It will provide tools to explore how health professionals can begin to address spiritual issues and needs for the betterment of their patients. It will also be a wonderful opportunity for Health care professionals / spiritual carers, as well as carers in the aged care system, to be re-energised and inspired by the growing awareness of the importance of spiritual care of people during these challenging times.
