“"I wish I could say that we‘ve come a long way in healthcare in the ways that we treat LGBT persons -- and in some ways we have. But there is still much to be done."”

This newsletter, published by HealthCare Chaplaincy, focuses on LGBT issues from the chaplaincy and palliative care disciplines. The newsletter covers issues such as offering pastoral care to LGBT people and families, concerns and resources for ministering to LGBT people and families, and many other articles. 

PlainViews is published by HealthCare Chaplaincy, an international leader in the research, education, consultation, and practice of multifaith spiritual care and palliative care.  HealthCare Chaplaincy provides and promotes professional chaplaincy services – arguably the most cost-effective resource to enhance patient-centered care through identifying beliefs and values leading to increased patient satisfaction, cultural competence, and effective communication.  HealthCare Chaplaincy is developing a National Center for Palliative Care Innovation, including a large enhanced assisted living residence.  PlainViews is one of their continuing professional educational initiatives with the mission of translating knowledge and skills into effective chaplaincy and palliative care.
