How Chaplains Help Patients Make Meaning of Illness (HLOL #194)

by | Jan 1, 2020

Reverend Christiaan Beukman, a native of the Netherlands, moved to the Boston area decades ago. He attended Harvard Divinity School and Andover-Newton Theological School and was the Protestant Chaplain and Diversity Specialist at a community hospital in Boston. He now serves as the Pastoral Ministries Manager at a large retirement community. He also is an Archdeacon in the Episcopal Church.

In this podcast, Reverend Beukman talks with Helen Osborne about:

  • What chaplains do, where they work, and their role on healthcare teams.
  • Ways that chaplains help patients make meaning of their illnesses.
  • How clinicians, educators, communicators and others can work with chaplains to resolve ethical dilemmas and provide culturally competent healthcare.

Health Literacy from A to Z: Practical Ways to Communicate Your Health Message, Second Edition (updated 2018), by Helen Osborne. Chapter 41, titled “You: Empathy and Humanity,” is especially relevant to this podcast.
