Meaning and purpose are used often as spiritual definitions for chaplains and spiritual care providers. Chaplains and spiritual care providers have often defined their roles as a ministry of presence. Today chaplains and spiritual care providers exist in a data-driven and evidence-based world, particularly for those who work in health settings. Thus, the need to provide empirical evidence related to the care provided by chaplains and spiritual care providers. The needed evidence may be gained through qualitative and quantitative research methods.

She holds positions at the University of Sydney and the Institute for Ethics and Society, University of Notre Dame Australia. Her PhD studied the role of the doctor in the spiritual care of patients with advanced cancer.
