Wright, M. C. (2001) Chaplaincy in hospice and hospital:findings from a survey in England and Wales. Palliative Medicine, 15 (3). pp. 229-242. ISSN 1477-030XFull text not available from this repository.
The purpose of this study was to identify and compare key features of spiritual care provision in hospices and acute hospitals within England and Wales. A survey by postal questionnaire was carried out on the perceptions of senior chaplains in 151 hospices and 194 hospital trusts. The overall response rate was 76%. The findings of the survey suggest (a) a trend away from establishing chapels as the spiritual focal point within hospitals and hospices, (b) the development of broader roles for chaplains, (c) a different level of service provision between hospices with funded chaplaincies and hospices with voluntary chaplaincies, (d) a wide range of non-religious spiritual care requirements on the part of patients and (e) a more frequent requirement for religious care in hospitals rather than hospices.
