15 Comment Patients expect those services from chaplains that more serve their spiritual needs: They want the chaplain to remind them of God’s care and presence They want the chaplain to remind them of God’s care and presence To be with them at times of anxiety and uncertainty - when they are “scared to death!” To be with them at times of anxiety and uncertainty - when they are “scared to death!” To listen to them (and validate their spiritual beliefs) To listen to them (and validate their spiritual beliefs)

16 Comment 4. They are relatively uninterested in rituals or sacraments (except Catholics) 14% said meeting ritual or sacramental needs was Very Unimportant) 5. 23% do not want counsel concerning moral or ethical concerns or decisions – 30 % Neutral – neither important or unimportant 11% Somewhat Unimportant 12% Very Unimportant

17 1. Pastoral Assessment 2. Pastoral Ministry – the provision of the primary ministry of presence and expression of service, etc. 3. Pastoral Counseling or Education – personal and familial counsel, ethical consultation, review of one’s spiritual journey 4. Pastoral Ritual / Worship A. 3: World Health Organization (WHO) Pastoral Intervention (PI) Coding

18 Part B. Chaplain Centered Issues Rank in your order of importance:  Report the number of services provided  Chart in the medical record  Record the number of patients seen  Measure chaplain productivity  Give an accounting to supervisor and administration  Measure outcomes  Conduct research for best practice  Practice self care

19 Part C. Metrics Why record chaplain activity? Why record chaplain activity? What is measured, counted, reported? What is measured, counted, reported? How measure patient needs?

21 What if you were in business for yourself?

22 what kind of salary would you expect? what kind of salary would you expect? who would pay you? who would pay you? how much would you charge for a patient consultation? how much would you charge for a patient consultation? how much for 5 minutes of prayer? how much for 5 minutes of prayer? how much for an anointing of the sick? how much for an anointing of the sick? how would you advertise your availability? how would you advertise your availability?

23 Saints Cosmas and Damien They saw in every patient a brother or sister in Christ, showed great charity to all, and treated their patients to the best of their ability. Yet no matter how much care a patient required, they never accepted any money for their services. Thus, they were called anargyroi in Greek, which means "the penniless ones."

24 Again, “What if you were in business for yourself?”

25 Is what we do some kind of Secret? “We don’t want to have to tell you what have to tell you what to do, you tell us what you do!”

26 Question: What Do We Do? We know what we do - and we need to describe it clearly. We know what we do - and we need to describe it clearly. When we know and value our work we will communicate it authentically. When we know and value our work we will communicate it authentically. When we document what services we provide we are able to know what remains undone. ( # of patients per chaplain?) When we document what services we provide we are able to know what remains undone. ( # of patients per chaplain?) When we know what we can do with current staff we are able to ask for additional staff to do what remains undone. When we know what we can do with current staff we are able to ask for additional staff to do what remains undone.

37 Developing Service Types Initiate a process with your staff to develop unique service types for your institution Initiate a process with your staff to develop unique service types for your institution Clearly define all service types to clearly distinguish them from each other Clearly define all service types to clearly distinguish them from each other Calculate a relative resource unit (RRU) based on time Calculate a relative resource unit (RRU) based on time Determine the expense per unit of service (UOS) and then the cost of each service type Determine the expense per unit of service (UOS) and then the cost of each service type

42 Collecting Data The CARE Program: Chaplain Activity Record - Electronic A model / example of the CARE program is available on CD at no cost. Your IT Department will need to adapt this Access Program to your environment.

43 The demonstration program on the CD will run as is with a limited data storage capacity. It is offered without cost to recipients and will not be supported by the distributor or any other entity or institution. Recipients must agree to rely on their own experience with Microsoft Access 2003 or the Information Technology Department in their institution to support and/or adapt the program to their system.
