Regulations regarding spiritual caregivers and social workers can be vague, but they offer the opportunity to comply with the “spirit of the law” to help us define excellence in the way psychosocial/spiritual suffering is addressed.  This webinar will cover social work and spiritual care related regulations, levels of licensing, assessment guidance, documentation, and how to stay involved when visits are refused.

Attendance certificate provided to self-report CE credits.
