Book Description

A thoughtful examination of the roles played by chaplaincy and spiritual care in hospices --This text refers to the paperback edition.


This book explores the chaplain's unique role and the privilege of being involved in the lives of those who approach death. Varied contributors helpfully probe the inner life of the chaplain and her relationships with staff and volunteers. It explores the changing role of the hospice chaplain, but has great relevance for all involved in End of Life care. I wholeheartedly commend it to all who have an interest in healthcare chaplaincy. -- Revd Mark Burleigh, Head of Chaplaincy & Bereavement Services, University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust and President, College of Health Care Chaplains

Challenged by the exigencies of health economies and the demands of secularists, chaplaincy is in transition. The diverse voices brought together by Murphy and Whorton speak to that transition with harmony and clarity about the 'traditional' values that shape chaplaincy identity and care, and that determine the distinctive contribution chaplains make to multi-professional team working. -- Revd Dr Steve Nolan, Princess Alice Hospice, Esher, and The University of Winchester

Fifty years after Dame Cicely Saunders founded the first modern hospice in 1967, this book is a timely and fitting tribute to her legacy. It consists of a series of reflections by chaplains and allied professionals, and is packed with inspiration, experience, and good practice. -- Revd Ann Fulton, Spiritual Care Co-ordinator for St Margaret's Hospice, Somerset, Church Times

Anyone who is involved in hospice work, or anyone working with people who are ill and lost, will find much in this book which is of value. -- The Revd John Lampard, Methodist Recorder
