As healthcare professionals learn to utilize spiritual interventions in patient care, they quickly learn they do not have enough time or resources to meet all of their patient's religious or spiritual needs. This session will have many practical tips on how you can be a change agent to establish a spiritual care team wherever you are called to serve as a healthcare professional. This Bible-based care system has been taught around the world in the author's "Saline Solution," "International Saline Solution," and "Grace Prescriptions," books, conferences, and small-group courses. After this session, you'll be prepared to build a team of Jesus followers to share Christ and His Grace with each patient you serve and each colleague you meet.


After this session attendees will be able to:
1) Understand how a spiritual care team can work in healthcare,
2) Understand the roles of the healthcare professional and the Spiritual Care Coordinator,
3) Understand the roles of pastoral professionals and lay ministers, and
4) Plan to implement a spiritual care team where you are called to serve as a healthcare professional.
