Understanding and Addressing the Grief of the Palliative Care Professional

Presented in English by Anita Mehta, RN, PhD, CFT


There is not enough attention paid to the fact that healthcare workers in palliative care are constantly immersed in a context of loss and grief. The key to coping with this is the understanding that this can often coexist with moments of hope, beauty, and connection. A reflection on how to reframe and understand loss can support a reconceptualization of loss into a profound sense of gain.

This presentation will explore loss and grief in the context of caring at the end of life. A narrative approach and sharing of stories using case examples will be used to highlight the importance of recognizing the need to grieve. In addition, strategies for reflection will be discussed.
