ACU Pastoral Care Research Collaboration

The relationship between religion and health is due to a complex mixture of health practices, social ties, the provision of systems of meaning, and feelings of strength to cope with stress and adversity. The Pastoral Care Research Collaboration is a multidisciplinary group of researchers that seeks to contribute to the body of evidence on the benefits of pastoral care to patients, staff and families. Importantly, it includes a number of external members from organisations that provide pastoral care and provides a platform for information sharing, collaboration and dissemination.
