Grief is an inevitable part of your job as a healthcare professional. Doctors, surgeons, nurses, paramedics, EMTs, etc. — you will experience a difficult loss at some point in your career. Coping with these situations is a topic not often discussed in healthcare training. While it is important to remain positive and always work for successful outcomes, it is equally essential that medical professionals are prepared to properly process their emotions that come from a negative outcome.
Also, dealing with distressed and grieving patients can be challenging and confronting. This short training will equip you and your team with the confidence to support them sensitively. It provides a guide for the practical assistance for people who have experienced loss and those who support them.
Grief comes in many forms. It may be the result of a relationship breakdown, the death of a loved one, the loss of a job, a miscarriage or a sudden illness. It is the normal and inevitable response to loss – but it can be an uncomfortable topic and many people don’t know what to say or how to manage these difficult situations.
Health professionals – in both their personal and professional roles – are constantly confronted with loss and grief. In many cases, it can be an especially intense experience, as the grief of those in care – and their families – are also grief experienced by the person caring for them.
As health professionals; you are in a unique position to reduce the impact of this grief to all concerned. However, such support is not without cost, and throughout this experience, health professionals need to understand not just the needs of those experiencing loss, but how they relate to it and cope with that loss themselves.
