About this Event

Description

How do we talk to someone who is dying? How do we know when someone is anticipating their death and needing to talk with someone? What informs and ensures best practice in end of life care settings – in hospitals; hospices, nursing homes or in the persons own home? Many would argue that the grief process starts before death. If this is true then what are the implications for the individual, their family and/or friends and the health care professionals of considering grief through the course of the illness? How does the visiting restrictions of COVID pandemic impact on the grieving process?

The workshop will be presented via Zoom – it will include a formal presentation with some opportunity for group discussions. It will be reflective and interactive throughout. It is advisable that those experiencing a recent loss or close bereavement should not attend this workshop.

Learning Outcomes

On completion of the workshop participants will be able to:

• understand the complexities of talking to someone who is dying;

• reflect on their own experience and clients’ experience of facing death;

• confidently begin to communicate with a person who is facing death in a safe and respectful manner;

• identify and begin to develop the use of different creative tools that might assist them in their own learning and in their direct work with clients;
