Welcome to PlainViews
PlainViews'® mission is to translate knowledge and skills into effective chaplaincy practice and care for the human spirit.
PlainViews® is a publication of the Healthcare Chaplaincy Network® (HCCN). PlainsViews® helps support the work of HCCN by publishing scholarly works, articles and studies at the intersection of health care and spiritual care, advancing best practices, and providing information about educational events, publications and course work of interest to practitioners. HCCN provides spiritual care to the critically and chronically infirmed, along with their caregivers, whoever they are, wherever they are, whatever they believe; and strives to advance the integration of spiritual care in health care through clinical practice, research and education both online and off.
