The California State University Institute for Palliative Care and HealthCare Chaplaincy Network – two leaders in their fields –  have created a new online certificate course to support  chaplains and other spiritual care providers with the delivery of palliative care to patients and their families in hospitals, hospices, long-term care facilities, and elsewhere. 

Created by a team of national experts, the nine-week curriculum strengthens the quality of palliative care by providing a foundation of knowledge and practice built on the applicable areas of the National Consensus Project’s Clinical Practice Guidelines for Quality Palliative Care  and the National Quality Forum’s National Framework and Preferred Practices for Palliative and Hospice Care Quality.

HealthCare Chaplaincy Network is the leading national multi-faith organization for the integration of spiritual care within health care and palliative care through scientific research, professional education and clinical practice.

In this groundbreaking program participants will receive the training on:

  • Educating their respective communities about palliative and end-of-life care in order to prepare them to overcome obstacles to considering palliative care and to make informed decisions about care for themselves, family members, and friends.
  • Becoming effective and articulate administrators of spiritual care programs in palliative care and hospice settings.
  • Creating and sustaining programs that meet both human and institutional needs.
  • Developing the skills needed to become leaders in the field of Palliative Care Chaplaincy through conceptual tools for analyzing and constructing innovative solutions to challenges facing the timely delivery and reception of the multiple dimension of palliative care, especially spiritual care.
