Scottish Journal of Healthcare Chaplaincy
The Scottish Journal of Healthcare Chaplaincy was published between 198 and 2013. It aimed to assist healthcare chaplains and healthcare workers as they strove to provide effective spiritual, religious and pastoral care within the contemporary healthcare setting. The journal provided a multi-disciplinary forum for the discussion of a wide range of issues pertaining to health care and health care chaplaincy in all of its diverse forms. It focused on the practice of chaplaincy in healthcare within Scotland and beyond, seeking to bring together practitioners and academics, ordained and lay people, in a way which enabled chaplains and carers to have invaluable access to new and innovative thinking and practice. As well as being multi-disciplinary, the journal also aimed to explore inter-cultural and inter-religious issues which are an important focus for chaplaincy and healthcare within contemporary Britain.
