A healthcare chaplain who is representing the Muslim community will demonstrate the appropriate religious knowledge, principles, and practices. The person must have a qualification in either a religious seminary or chaplaincy training, and must demonstrate personal integrity, upright conduct, and strong religiosity. They will have a faith background that reflects the community that s/he is expected to serve, as well as being known and respected within that community. The ability to counsel patients and staff without proselytising must also be demonstrated to receive the designation of 'good standing'.
