Spiritual care training and conferences

The Centre for Paediatric Spiritual Care is committed to experiential learning. We run occasional spiritual care activity days when visitors from other hospitals, hospices or organisations have the opportunity to work alongside a Children's hospital staff member for the day and learn about how we work.

We currently work with the Midlands Institute for Children, Youth and Mission and Staffordshire University delivering accredited modules at level four and level seven in spiritual care and paediatric chaplaincy-related topics.

We run at least one module a year and these include four study days at the Children’s hospital including one focusing on activities with patients. It is possible to attend the modules without completing the assessment.

The next module will be on Multidisciplinary Spiritual Care, the dates for this will be:

  • Thursday 22 March 2018
  • Wednesday 25 April 2018
  • Thursday 17 May 2018
  • Wednesday 27 June 2018
