Referring to Chaplaincy in Serious Illness: Evidence and Practice

Healthcare and Religion Lecture Series

Natalie C. Ernecoff, PhD, MPH
Division of General Internal Medicine
Department of Medicine
University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine

Abstract: Although many patients and their families view religion or spirituality as an important consideration near the end of life, such concerns are infrequently screened for and addressed in clinical settings. It is important for clinicians to understand when to screen and how to refer to chaplaincy or spiritual care services. Evidence in palliative care research supports broad screening for spiritual care needs by clinicians and describes the broad skillset of spiritual care providers and chaplaincy to meet spiritual, religious, and existential needs of people with serious illness, including those near the end of life.
