The National Clergy Project on End-of-Life Care

Dr. Michael Balboni and Dr. Patrick Smith

This project facilitates clergy education in understanding the theological issues surrounding spiritual care within terminal illnesses, and the medical decision-making process faced by patients, families, and religious communities in the United States. The project advances this objective by supporting additional data analysis of a large national survey and the publication of a practical-theological book on the topic co-authored by Dr. Michael Balboni and Dr. Patrick Smith.
