Professional chaplains respect and respond to a patient's values and beliefs. Illness or injury can bring isolation, fear, doubt, and grief. The chaplain’s special focus of caring is directed toward the person who has the sickness or injury. The chaplain addresses these crises through spiritual care that emphasizes transcendence, faith, and hope, thus promoting healing and recovery.
