Symposium Report: Researching Spiritual and Pastoral Care
Measuring the Value of Chaplaincy
Keywords:symposium, research, co-production, LEAP, biopsychosocial spiritual
I see myself as both chaplain and prospector. Occasionally, I find a gold nugget that needs weighing and evaluating. It may be rejected and may be my last. But what compels me to the uncertain life of a research chaplain? Where did the idea of the symposium come from? I address this symposium report as a case study, beginning with a short answer to these questions. I then describe the background, the keynote presentations, and close by reflecting on outcomes.
