  • Health care for the seriously ill is focused on quality care outcomes that emphasize decreased inpatient utilization and longitudinal care management with a focus on population based management.

  • Presenter: Alyssa Adreani MA Applied Linguistics MA Pastoral Ministry Chaplain/Coordinator of Spiritual Care Newton-Wellesley Hospital Newton, MA
  • We may naturally fall into patterns of heavy or existential thinking as we work with patients, families, and caregivers in times of distress, illness, and hospitalization. We easily and quite understandably dwell in serious and sacred spaces as we honor the spiritual and emotional journey unique to the individual. But there is room for laughter! While holding the reverence for the difficult situation, we can still observe and access moments of humor that open a door to a powerful and comforting range of emotions, conversations, and experiences. Ultimately, recognizing and honoring a patient’s sense of humor can invite deeply healing authenticity.
  • Participant Goals: 1. To acknowledge humor as a naturally occurring human experience, even in times of pain or distress. 2. To highlight how humor may assist in coping with and processing distress. 3. To begin (or continue!) a journey towards recognizing and celebrating our own humor and that of those we meet and work with.

The workshop will also include case presentations that highlight the work of Palliative Care Chaplains in a variety of settings. Time will also be spent to introduce and spotlight several palliative care chaplains and their work. Please note, the Rev. Jeuland is the Principal Investigator and Dr. Fitchett is a consultant for this research project.
