Cork CPE supervisor contributes chapter to new book on Paediatric Chaplaincy
On Thursday 7 June at Birmingham Children’s Hospital a new paediatric chaplaincy book “Paediatric Chaplaincy: principles, practices and skills” was formally launched as part of the annual conference of the Paediatric Chaplaincy Network of Great Britain and Ireland. This exciting new book edited by Paul Nash, Mark Bartel and Sally Nash draws the expertise of healthcare chaplains from around the world and different faith traditions to highlight best practice and skills for chaplains working with neonates, infants, children, young people and their families.
Daniel Nuzum who is a CPE supervisor at the Cork University Hospital CPE Centre contributed a chapter to this new volume on ministry amongst neonatal patients and those who cannot speak. Daniel drawing on his experience as a healthcare chaplain at Cork University Maternity Hospital sets out innovative ways to provide meaningful pastoral care for babies and their families in the neonatal period.
The Rev’d George Handzo (Research & Quality, Healthcare Chaplaincy Network, USA) describes this new book as the ‘now go-to teaching text and reference work in the field’.
Speaking at the launch Daniel said “As a CPE supervisor and practising chaplain and researcher involved in the education of future healthcare chaplains it was wonderful to be able to draw on the experiences of pastoral care from a world-class multidisciplinary team at Cork University Hospital and Cork University Maternity Hospital and to contribute to pastoral education and care in an international context.”
The book is available from Jessica Kingsley Publishers https://www.jkp.com/uk/paediatric-chaplaincy-2.html
