Outcome Oriented Chaplaincy (OOC) is a method of chaplaincy care that emphasizes achieving, describing, measuring, and improving the outcomes that result from a chaplain's work, alongside the parallel framework of evidence-based healthcare. This book examines the underlying principles of OOC and incorporates first-hand accounts of chaplains who have made a measured difference to patients and their families.

Brent Peery draws on more than fifteen years of experience within the field of Outcome Oriented Chaplaincy, exploring its evolution and history within the complex culture of healthcare, and how its underlying principles of assessments, interventions, outcomes and documentation are most effectively put into practice. This practical guide will benefit chaplains interested in the approach of OOC, and identify a framework for providing the best spiritual care for those facing life's most difficult moments.


'With just the right mix of personal experience and comprehensive research, Dr. Peery establishes that effective chaplaincy care requires much more than intuition and thoughtful intentionality. Relying on relevant history, perspectives, and experts, Brent articulates how to ensure thoughtful intentions result in outcomes worthy of the trust placed in the professional chaplain by those in need. The attentive reader will come away with usable and integratable options for their own clinical context.'
- The Rev. Ronald Oliver, PhD, MBA, BCC President, Association of Professional Chaplains, 2018-2019

'Brent Peery is our foremost champion for outcome oriented chaplaincy. His book is an excellent introduction to this important model for chaplaincy care. It should have a prominent place in chaplaincy education programs.'
- George Fitchett, DMin, PhD, Transforming Chaplaincy
