Dr Helen Dick
I’m a minister with the Uniting Church of Australia currently working as chaplain at Trinity College Queensland. I have worked as the UCA hospital chaplain on the Gold Coast, as an aged-care chaplain and as Director of Mission with UnitingCare Queensland. Before coming to Australia in 1999 I also worked in congregations with the Presbyterian Church of Aoteaora New Zealand.
My PhD thesis explores the spiritual and religious beliefs of residential aged care workers “in the face of death, dying and suffering in the workplace” and I have an ongoing interest in spirituality in all aspects of healthcare. I am part of the Palliative Care Queensland, Spiritual Care Leads network.
In my recreational time, as well as spending time with family, I enjoy running and have completed half-marathons in Australia, China, Brazil, Iceland, Singapore and New Zealand
