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.

Content includes:
• 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

NOTE: Facilities (and groups of nurses working from the same facility) receive a discount of 25% on registrations of 5 or more, 40% discount on registrations of 15 or more, 50% discount on 15 or more and 60% on 20 or more!

Overall Objective:

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.
