  • 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
