OCTOBER TOPIC: "Current thinking in data collection and recoding in spiritual care"
Charting and documenting spiritual care in medical records is a topic of ongoing interest, especially with the transition to electronic medical records in many Australian health services. Christine will discuss current practice, updated Spiritual Health guidelines and perspectives on current research from a workshop that she attended in Switzerland in January 2019.
Christine Hennequin has worked both as a spiritual care practitioner and a manager for around 14 years in public hospitals. Other roles have included coordinating bereavement support, projects and consumer participation. Her qualifications include Pastoral Care, Social Sciences, Management and Project Management. Since joining Spiritual Health Association in October 2009, she has managed several projects including developing spiritual care in rural and regional areas, developing and evaluating frameworks and guidelines including a minimum dataset for documenting spiritual care. Her work focuses on quality improvement and developing best practice models of spiritual care.
The PD Program is held on the 2nd Wednesday of each month at different hospitals between March and November (with a break for the month of July) and features:
* Guest educators on a diverse range of issues pertinent to spiritual care
* Afternoon Facilitated Discussion Groups - small groups meet for an hour to discuss the morning education session, and any implications for work practice (optional).
* Guided prayer and reflection (in keeping with a multi-faith focus)
* Morning tea and lunch.
