  Title Research. Chaplaincy and spiritual care services: The case for Muslim patients
Journal Top Integr Health Care. 2011 ;2(2):Online access only
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Article
Abstract/Notes Religion and spirituality are the first, and sometimes the only available sources of comfort for many hospital patients facing difficult and stressful times. Since chaplaincy is typically practiced along Judeo-Christian lines, other spiritual perspectives receive less attention. This study assesses the existing chaplaincy care services available for Muslim patients as perceived by two different groups, 33 Muslim and non-Muslim chaplains and by 56 directors of chaplaincy departments at New York City hospitals. A mixed-methods approach was used, including a cross-sectional survey and in-depth interviews. The results indicate that Muslim patients’ religious needs may be underserved, and that they may not receive appropriate chaplaincy care. These results may provide a better understanding of the challenges that other immigrants and minority groups face when receiving medical care, and of the need for quality spiritual care for these communities.
