It is a myth that nurses “are used to death, therefore are not affected by it. They have become immune to death!”
If we do not recognise, acknowledge and manage death and grief in ourselves, it places us at risk of becoming unwell, it will also reduce our ability to assist our residents and or colleagues. Both these activities form part of our core responsibilities.
• defining the terms; knowing your own repsonses
• personal and organisational strategies
• what can I do to help; the tasks of grief
• compassion fatigue; current trends
• disenfranchised grief; pathologising grief
At the completion of this session the nurse should be able to discuss the relevant terms associated with grief; acknowledge the level of loss & grief in aged care; identify complicated/unresolved grief and assist colleagues to communicate their experiences of grief.
