9 9 Judeo-Christian roots with deacons and deaconesses, monks and nuns, parish nursing and the nursing profession itself Modern day pioneer: Granger Westburg, a Lutheran pastor and hospital chaplain Relationship between spiritual well-being and physical health 1984, pilot project of partnership of 6 community churches with Lutheran General Hospital in Chicago, first parish nurse program A. Djupe, et al., Reaching Out: Parish Nursing Services, International Parish Nurse Resource Center, 1994 Faith Community Nursing History

10 10 The intentional integration of the practice of faith with the practice of nursing. Assumes that health is a journey toward well being and is the interrelationship of body, mind, and spirit. Assumes that health is not merely the absence of disease. It is related to everything a person does, thinks, and feels; therefore parish nurses focus on the whole person as they promote wellness, disease prevention, health education, and healthy spirituality.

Outcomes

19  Trends & Context  E-chaplaincy  Collaboration with Mercy Clinics (physician offices)  Emerging Integration

20  Mercy’s strategic plan  Electronic medical records  Emergence of medical home model and care management  Telemedicine  Growing consumer desire for on-line information 20

21  This is a complete paradigm shift:  from a pastoral visit to an ongoing relationship  from pen/paper to computer/technology  from acute care to patient care site/home  from “come to us” to “we meet you where you are”  From in-person encounter to contact  from silo to integration -Kenneth Potzman, Director, Pastoral Services, Mercy’s Eastern Communities 21

22  Using e-mail to provide spiritual care  Allows access to a chaplain at times that are convenient  Enables Mercy to extend pastoral services beyond acute care center 22

23  Initial thought of way to extend staff ministry  Offer chance for co-workers to connect with chaplain via e-mail  Intranet  Built and expanding  Internet  Patient Portal 23

24  95% of patient encounters are outside of hospital  Pastoral Services strategic goals are aligned with Mercy’s  VISION: Everywhere and every way Mercy serves, attention to spiritual needs will be evident.

25  The delivery of pastoral services will look different in clinic setting than it does in hospital.  Cannot just export what exists in hospitals  Need to intentionally plan appropriate attention to spiritual care in Mercy Clinic sites

26  Redesign priorities and expectations of where chaplains spend time  Pastoral Services resources (people, expertise, printed materials, successful practices) shared across the ministry  Use new technology to connect chaplains with patients in clinics

27  Approach clinic leaders— physicians and office managers  Invite to be “learning partners”

28  Process to identify spiritual needs  Screening, Awareness  Referral process  Patient education  Strong suggestion  Consult ordered  Response to the referra l  Timing  How: in person, phone, e-mail, video  Outcomes and quality

29  Education is not enough to generate referrals  Referrals cannot be dependent on the personality of or relationship with a chaplain  Need screening tools and “triggers” to ensure appropriate referrals

30  Integration into the care team model  Medical home  Oncology – navigator (care management)

31  Do not need a chaplain physically present in clinic setting  Technology enables coverage  E-chaplaincy (e-mail)  Phone  Video consult  Video training

32  Work with Care Managers to identify protocols for referrals  Triggers for a referral  Appropriate responses  Communicating interventions  Outcomes  Exploration about how to support growing telemedicine consults
