CLARITY AND COST EFFECTIVENESS IN CHAPLAINCY
Keywords:chaplaincy, self-definition, role, function, pastoral care, cost effective
The need for chaplains to articulate their speciality and distinctiveness is vital. Such self-definition aids our working with others, as they more fully understand our role and function. This will increase the confidence and skills of the pastoral practitioner and thereby enable the chaplain to demonstrate more effectively the worth and benefit of chaplaincy involvement in healthcare.
