Nursing Networking Café, Robin Cohen
Nursing Networking Cafés, hosted by Trinity Western University School of Nursing, are a gathering place for nurses to discuss topics of interest in a collegial environment.
You are invited to our November 6 Nursing Network Cafe:
Caring for the Caregivers: Guiding Family Caregivers to Maintain their Own Wellbeing
Family caregivers of people at the end of life often experience decreased wellbeing while providing care and into bereavement. Because of limited health care resources, they are often treated primarily as caregivers by the health care system, rather than people who are themselves suffering. We’ll discuss the implementation and evaluation of a volunteer Caregiver Guide service to help caregivers maintain their own wellbeing in the patient’s last months and into the early months of bereavement. We’ll also discuss how volunteers might be helpful to family caregivers in your practice, what difficulties might arise and how might they be overcome.
We hope you can join us!
