Description

This half-day day conference is a way to recognize professional grief, which is frequently experienced but often hidden, while also building knowledge and skills in grief and loss related to death and non-death loss. By embracing healthy coping behaviors and a supportive work culture, we hope to decrease compassion fatigue, mitigate occupational stress and burnout, and increase the joy and fulfillment in this type of work. This event is being offered through the Honoring Life and Loss: Grief Awareness for Faculty and Staff Initiative.

Our 2021 lineup includes the following presentations:

Delivering Bad News: The Art of Compassionate Communication—Aimee Vantine & Lisbeth Harcourt
Coping and Self-Care: In the Midst of Life and Loss—Susan Burgess & Lisa Evans
Unit Based Interventions: Teams Taking Care of Each Other
Code Lavender: LaToya Freeman
Therapeutic Movement: Megan Sims
Unit Based Compassion Rounds: Josette Schembri
(4.0 CEs offered for nursing and social work)
