Sign Petition

 

Dear Friends,

Professional health care chaplaincy and the value that it brings to Americans is not a topic on the radar screen of the members of the U.S. Congress.

Therefore, from conversations with ACPE’s Trace Haythorn, we’ve conceived of the idea of creating a petition that will be circulated to all members of Congress this spring. It makes the case that professional health care chaplains cost-effectively improve patient and family experience and satisfaction with their health care.

Being able to say that the professional health care chaplain organizations support this petition will add weight to making the case. So will the gathering of as many signatures as possible – from chaplains and anyone who supports our profession.

You will find the petition and signature page on our main website here: http://www.healthcarechaplaincy.org/sign-on-statement

I have two requests:

  1. Please let me know if we can give visibility to your organization on Capitol Hill by stating that your organization endorses this petition.
  2. Please sign it yourself and send the below information to your members, your professional and personal network, and everyone you know who supports the case that professional health to ask that they sign the petition. Thank you!

A number of professional health care chaplaincy organizations have initiated a drive to gain signatures for a petition that will be disseminated to all the members of the US Congress. It explains why and how professional health care chaplains cost-effectively improve patient and family experience and satisfaction with their health care.We urge you to sign the petition at http://www.healthcarechaplaincy.org/sign-on-statement and to share this with your professional network and everyone you know (do not need to be chaplains) who support the statement. The deadline for signatures is April 15th. Thank you.
