International Saline Conference & Training

by Ms. Diane M. Vescovi (International Health Services)
Date: 27,28,30-Mar-09

The International Saline Conference and Training held in Singapore on March 27-28 and March 30 was very well received by those who attended. They engaged with the material and found clear, practical direction for being witnesses in their workplaces. Many commented on the value of having a case study (role play) to illustrate spiritual care of patients and to understand the faith journey as a process. In Singapore, this person was called by the name “Ah Beng”. In addition to the role play, participants also commented frequently on their appreciation of real-life examples, their desire for follow-up in the form of e-mail communication and the usefulness of the tools, especially faith flags and faith stories. Their dissatisfaction with the training was mostly related to feeling time pressure or wanting more activities and opportunity to ask questions. When it came to training of trainers (TOT), they were most satisfied with the group interaction, with a trainer assigned to each group. For the TOT, many comments had to do with the need for “more” – interaction, information, examples, hands-on experience. As the TOT module is in development, their desire for more is in keeping with our intentions to fill it out.
