Welcome to PlainViews
Welcome to PlainViews®, the online journal that translates knowledge and skills into effective chaplaincy and palliative care. It is published electronically by HealthCare Chaplaincy Network™ on the first and third Wednesday of each month.
HealthCare Chaplaincy Network™ is a national health care organization that provides spiritual care for the seriously ill and their caregivers in hospitals, online, and elsewhere for all ‒ whoever they are, whatever they believe, wherever they are. Its mission is to advance the integration of spiritual care in health care through clinical practice, research, and education. It has been caring for the human spirit since 1961. Learn more at www.healthcarechaplaincy.org.
PlainViews®is designed to provide readers with information and resources for their professional practice in a concise and convenient format. Articles highlight contemporary issues, specialties, and interests to professional chaplains, spiritual care providers, and others involved in palliative care.
You can explore a sample issue of PlainViews® here.
We encourage submissions to PlainViews® and invite you to review the Submission Guidelines. The PlainViews® team provides editorial support to authors who wish to contribute.
Reading PlainViews® may help you meet continuing education hours for board certified chaplains and other professionals. Contact your membership/certifying organization directly to determine the number of hours that may be accepted and the necessary process.
We hope that you will find PlainViews® informative, interesting, provocative, and challenging.
