Third Session - Wednesday, 17 May 2017, 9.30am at the Royal Children's Hospital.
Topic: Insights from Prison Ministry in providing Spiritual Care in Healthcare Settings
A Buddhist, Christian and Islamic panel discussion on the nature and form of prison spiritual care. Speakers will offer any wisdom gained from their respective work in prison and if any such learnings can enrich the care of patients in healthcare settings and in the understandings of the carers who provide it. There will be a focus on how spiritual care in these vastly different domains requires different approaches, style and personality, with a need to be malleable and have a constant eye on the bigger picture.
Panel: Hojun Futen, Healthcare & Prison Chaplaincy Coordinator at Buddhist Council of Victoria
Ramzi Elsayed, Muslim Prison Chaplain
Tracey English, State Coordinator Chaplaincy at the Salvation Army
