Abstract: This chapter considers the profession of chaplaincy and the role that chaplains have in providing spiritual care within clinical and community settings with an emphasis upon their collaboration with other allied health clinicians. Although chaplaincy spiritual care services occur across a broad range of health care areas, this chapter will primarily consider three specialist areas of chaplaincy that cover the human lifespan, namely, paediatric chaplaincy, mental health care chaplaincy and aged care chaplaincy.
