Digitale Spiritual Care – Quo Vadis? (14.9.23)

The ongoing digitization of society and health care opens up new forms of spiritual care and creates new challenges in the work of spiritual care workers. Digital technologies are increasingly part of their work organizations, their forms of communication and last but not least the practices of spiritual care recipients. The aim of this conference is to gain insight into the current developments and to analyze their opportunities and risks.
