Funded by two
grants totaling $4.5M over four years from the John Templeton
Foundation, with additional support from ACPE and the major professional
chaplaincy organizations, the Transforming Chaplaincy: Promoting Research Literacy for Improved Patient Outcomes project
seeks to equip hospital chaplains to use research to guide, evaluate
and advocate for the spiritual care they provide. One of the ways Transforming Chaplaincy plans
to close the gap between hospital chaplains’ current limited research
literacy and evidence-based care is through the provision of Curriculum
Development Grants to 70 ACPE-accredited CPE residency programs. The
grants are intended to support the incorporation of research literacy
education in their curricula.
The webinar, co-led by Lex Tartaglia and George
Fitchett, will review the CPE
Curriculum Development Grant application requirements, present several models for teaching research literacy in CPE residency programs, and allow time for questions from webinar participants.
