Transforming Chaplaincy is a think tank with a mission to promote research literacy in chaplaincy to improve patient outcomes.

By integrating contemporary scholarship into ongoing practice,chaplains can provide better care, educators can prepare chaplains to be more effective in their work, and healthcare administrators and professionals can drive effective institutional change. Our resources give these groups the tools they need to transform chaplaincy in their institutions.
