Spiritual Care Services

Clinically and theologically trained spiritual care providers (chaplains) support spiritual health needs for those with any or no religious affiliation.

This Service Provides spiritual and emotional support for patients, families and staff as an integral part of the multidisciplinary care team that works within the health care system to assess and address spiritual care needs, which may include:

  • spiritual assessment and intervention
  • facilitating rituals and sacraments (e.g. sweet-grass, sacrament of the sick)
  • decision-making support and supportive care for patient and family at end-of-life
  • collaboration with religious leaders at patient's and/or family's request
  • serving as a resource to care team on topics such as communication, religious and cultural awareness, grief and bereavement, compassion fatigue, and spiritual needs assessment
  • daily 24-hour (on-call) coverage at most acute care centres

Chaplains adhere to professional standards of practice for spiritual care delivery.
