”Cancer” has been the number one cause of death in the past 27 years. It is found that chaplain's care enhanced the good death index of terminal cancer patients. The most helpful of chaplain's care is a way of spiritual care for hospice care. The topics for predicaments of chaplain's care and what characteristics the chaplains for spiritual care should have are very important. This study employs semi-structured interview for a Buddhist chaplain and the training institution. ”People are unclear about chaplain's role”, ”different belief from patients and problems for cooperation”, ”challenging to train a professional for chaplain's care” and ”the struggle between service and practice” are the four predicaments facing chaplain's care found in this research. In addition to enthusiasm, the characteristics a professional chaplain for chaplain's care should have are ”stable personality”, ”sensitive to patients' problems”, ”respecting patients' belief’ and ”organizational capacity”. This paper also discusses about the possible substitution for chaplain of the spiritual care and the importance of training chaplains to accompany terminal patients during the entire process.
