CONSULTATION IN SALZBURG 2014
We are looking forward to our 13th consultation which will take place in Salzburg, Austria, from Wednesday May 28th till Sunday June 1st. The theme of the conference is: Open for the future: Envisioning chaplaincy in the midst of transition. Health Care is evolving rapidly. How will demographics, finance, social ethics, multiple and chronic diseases, patient self management, home care and outpatient care, an ageing society influence healthcare and chaplaincy? How will chaplaincy look in 5 or 10 years? Are we heading towards a cliff as chaplains? Do we have a vision for chaplaincy that will enable us to handle the future of health care? Questions that will lead to interesting discussions and exchange. We already have two eminent speakers who will join us to give an input for our discussions: Prof. Dr. John Swinton (University of Aberdeen) and Prof. Dr. Clemens Sedmak (King’s College London and Salzburg University).
