Degrees Offered:

Religion Health and Human Values

Format: Campus

Program Description:

A central aim of our research program is to expand our understanding of the relationship between religion/spirituality and health and to assist chaplains and other health care professionals to apply this information for more effective spiritual care. With this in mind our aim is to transform chaplaincy to a research informed profession.

While research has been a part of the department for many years, our formal research program began in 1990. Early investigations in our program examined how patients use religion to cope with their illness, patient satisfaction with spiritual care, and outcomes of the department's Clinical Pastoral Education program.
