Collective Soul Symposium: “Living the Integration of Spiritual Care in our Daily Practice”… Touching the spirit and re-enchanting the soul in the body

 Spirituality and religiosity are recognized as factors that contribute to quality of life and coping strategies in many persons facing life-threatening illnesses.  These life-threatening events can also give rise to spiritual distress.  When combined with chronic or acute pain and other physical and psychological symptoms, spiritual distress can be a component of a patient’s total suffering which the palliative care team (The Collective Soul) seeks to alleviate, enhancing the human spirit and creating a healing environment in the middle of the distressful situation. 

The purpose of this educational event is to provide community-based, hospital, chaplains, ministers and other interested healthcare professionals with skills for a better understanding of the Palliative Care Team role; embracing the human spirit of patients with advanced illness, multiple physical, psychosocial, spiritual, and religious issues.
