ACPE Research Network Article of the Month
Transforming Chaplaincy is pleased to feature here the Article of the Month, produced by ACPE Research. Each month at least one article is discussed in detail; related resources are also recommended, as well as ways to incorporate this latest research into the classroom.
This month’s article was chosen especially for students and clinical chaplains new to the prospect of conducting research. It shows how a busy chaplain took a research-minded approach to addressing an issue for his department, developing a study in partnership with allied professionals. See also, in the Related Items of Interest section of the web page, resources regarding the “File Drawer Effect” and Joint Commission Standards.
