Religious leaders often play an important role in supporting patients and families through the dying process and the decisions the patient and family must make.  This program seeks to provide additional resources to help religious leaders in their work with families.  It will discuss:

  • Basic information and terms a religious leader should know about end of life care
  • Patient-centered care models that incorporate spiritual care and cultural sensitivity
  • Resources for faith leaders regarding the medical and social services
