Event Description

The 37th annual Bowles Chapel Lecture presents “Spiritual Care for Patients with Serious Illness: Why and How?” featuring George Fitchett, DMin, PhD, BCC. Dr. Fitchett co-authored a July 2022 article in The Journal of the American Medical Association, which reviewed nearly 9,000 articles published on the topic of spirituality and health since 2000. The collaborators on this project systematically identified the practices most supported by research evidence for their positive impact on patient health. He will help us examine some of those practices, the evidence that supports them, and how we might incorporate them into our care for patients and families with serious illness.
