In regard to the topics covered this week, what surprised, interested, or challenged you the most, and why

As an RN you are certain to encounter death. It may be a patient that you know is dying, giving you time to prepare; it may be sudden and unexpected; it may be a routine part of your role (if you specialize in certain areas) or it may be really rare.

  • How prepared do you feel, right now, to deal with the death of a patient?
  • How prepared do you feel, right now, to deal with a dying patient’s family?
  • How will you stay tuned in to the effects that encounters with death and the dying, have on you personally, in order to maintain your own personal health (physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually)
  • This week your prep work consisted of watching a selection of TED Talks focused on the care of the dying. You heard from people working with patients at end-of-life and how doing so transformed their world views. A few key takeaways from these TED Talks include:Acknowledgment that at end-of-life, physical wounds cannot be cured, but spiritual wounds CAN be attended to.The value of self-reflection, self-knowing, and striving to create a legacy through living a life of meaning and purpose.The power of listening, and of letting go, in finding spiritual peace.(1) How can you take the lessons that these practitioners shared, and use them to refine your approach to the spiritual care of patients?(2) How can you take the lessons that these three practitioners shared, and use them to guide your approach to spiritual self-care?(3) How do you believe it changes your approach to spiritual care, to know that a patient’s death is near?
