Connecticut Social Work Oncology Group Spring Conference 2015
Gaylord Hospital, Chauncey Conference Center
Wallingford, CT
Share this event:

This is the spring conference of the Connecticut Social Work Oncology Group.  These conferences are held twice a year on pertinent topics for oncology social workers or other health care professionals working with oncology patients. This conference will focus on spiritual care at the end of life in a global context.  

The presenter will be Mark Lazenby, PhD, MSN.

Mark earned his Master's of Science in Nursing, specializing in oncology from Yale School of Nursing.  He is an Advanced Oncology Nurse Practitioner.  He previously earned a Master's in Theology and a PhD in Philosophy of Religion.  

At the end of the presentation, attendees will be able to:

-Describe the association between spirituality/religion and quality of life
Spirituality (or spiritual well-being) is difficult to define. But when we look at current research on spirituality (spiritual well-being), we see that spirituality (spiritual well-being) is not necessarily associated with patient's faith. Rather, it is more connected to patients' senses of peace and meaning.  So one way of looking at spirituality (spiritual well-being) is to look at patients' ability to find peace amid the experience of life-limiting illness and to make meaning of it and during it.  

-Articulate the problem of lack of homogeneity of spirituality/religion when working with patients who have unmet spiritual needs
Every faith tradition (maybe even person, in fact) means something different by spirituality, and what spiritual well-being is comprised of.  This is the problem of lack of homogeneity.  But this problem can be gotten around by focusing patients on peace and meaning, for what brings peace and meaning is individual to patients within a faith tradition and for those who have no faith tradition or spiritual beliefs.

-Describe the spiritual/religious beliefs of at least one spiritual/religious tradition different from the auditor's own.

In this presentation, Mark will go through 13 of the world's major faith traditions to describe how, within that tradition in general  patients  find peace and make meaning, particularly at the end of life.
