  • Julie M. Jones, M.A. Executive Director, Mission and Ministry Mercy Health System Chesterfield, MO

  • Like other Catholic healthcare providers, Mercy Health is fundamentally committed to addressing the spiritual needs of patients. Traditionally, pastoral care has been provided only in the hospital, yet spiritual needs exist in other settings. Mercy determined 95 percent of patient encounters are in physician offices and has explored ways to incorporate attention to spiritual needs in these settings. This workshop will provide an overview of Mercy’s innovative approach for providing pastoral care to the clinics, including telemedicine and other technology; an outline of steps in implementing the strategy; and measurements and indicators of success. Panelists will present perspectives of physicians, system leaders, mission leaders, pastoral services leaders, chaplains, and patients.

  • Jerilyn E. Felton, D.Min. Four Footed Ministries Pastoral Care Volunteer Program Coordinator Maryville Nursing Home Portland, OR
  • Sr. Josephine Pelster, SSMO, BSN, BCC Director of Spiritual Services Maryville Nursing Home Beaverton, OR
  • No one can doubt the popularity of dogs in our culture. Many spiritual/pastoral care providers have recognized this bond and have casually used their canine companions in their visitation work. However, a comprehensive program that has been preliminarily “road-tested”, safe, effective, and repeatable for these interactions insuring safety at all levels has been missing. This experiential/interactive workshop will provide participants with a glimpse into one comprehensive structure for ministry with dogs as pastoral care partners.

  • Rev. Dean V. Marek, B.A., BCC Retired Chaplain Rochester, MN
  • This workshop describes the use of a predictive modeling statistical procedure (multivariate logistic regression), to identify characteristics of patients who are most likely to want a chaplain’s ministry. In a multiple site patient expectation survey, the strongest predictor of wanting to see a chaplain was a reported affiliation with Catholic or Protestant denominations. Catholic patients were almost eight times as likely to want to see a chaplain. And what about Protestant patients?
