14th Consultation of the ENHCC

Debrecen, Hungary - 1 to 5 of June 2016

"Advancing care of the soul: sharing best practice to promote spiritual health"

It is our pleasure to invite you to the 14th Consultation of ENHCC which will be held between June 1-5, 2016, in Debrecen, Hungary. We are excited about this opportunity to meet, share and work together from different countries, views, cultural and denominational experiences because we believe it can enable us to improve health care chaplaincy. We face a chaotic and confused world also reflecting itself in health care and thus making the topic for this consultation both very relevant and exciting.

Opening Ceremony - Wednesday 1st of June, 2016

Day 1 - Thursday 2nd of June, 2016

Day 2 - Friday 3rd of June, 2016

Day 3 - Saturday 4th of June, 2016

The European Network of Health Care Chaplaincy

provides opportunities for representatives of European professional associations for chaplains and of churches and faiths to exchange and learn from each other in the care for the existential, spiritual and religious needs of patients, relatives and staff. The network works for the development of professional guidelines, promotes a high quality standard of health care chaplaincy and advocates the integration of spiritual care in health care. The Network was founded during the sixth consultation for European hospital chaplains at the Orthodox Academy of Crete in November 2000.
