HealthCare Chaplaincy Network, Inc. (HCCN) will host a seminar on December 18 that will guide chaplains and other health care professionals in assisting patients and their families throughout each phase of the dying process.

The presenter will be Samuel C. Klagsbrun, M.D., a professor of clinical psychiatry and behavioral sciences at Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University in the Bronx, N.Y., and executive medical director and owner of Four Winds Hospitals in New York State. The psychiatrist is a member of HCCN’s board of directors.

Klagsbrun will discuss the dying process and the differing needs of patients and their families during each phase; how to help families prepare for loss; and practical matters, such as funeral arrangements and financial and legal issues.

The 90-minute seminar will begin at 10:30 a.m. (ET), and participants can attend in person at HCCN’s headquarters in New York or via webcast. Registration is $35 in advance and $50 the day of the event for in-person attendance, and $50 per computer terminal for the webcast. To register, visit http://bit.ly/1wrQ8Cf.  For more information, call 212-644-1111 x235.

The event is part of HCCN’s monthly “Spiritual Care Grand Rounds Series.” The series is designed for chaplains, palliative care team members, and other health care professionals, such as social workers and nurses, who are involved in the spiritual-related needs of patients and their families in hospital or outpatient settings.
