Coaching Conversations for People Living with Chronic & Advanced Illness
Insert shortcode
From October 1, 2017 to October 3, 2017

Navigating serious illness and the end of life within the current health care system can often be confusing, isolating, crisis-driven, and dis-heartening. Coaching conversations help guide individuals living with chronic and serious illness to make decisions about care and treatments within the values and meaning of their own life story.  Opening up these conversations earlier in the trajectory of illness may uncover new possibilities for wellbeing — and transform how a person lives the last months or years of their life. This experiential workshop will use a coaching model to share practical skills with nurses and nurse coaches who want to engage more effectively in conversations about what matters most in living and dying.

Come nurture your body, mind & spirit in a setting that includes other inspiring nurses, beautiful gardens & views, and delicious meals.

This three-day experiential program will assist nurses and nurse coaches to:

  1. Explore personal beliefs and values about aging, serious illness, and dying to further enhance self-development.
  2. Further develop coaching skills to engage more effectively in conversations about what matters most in living and dying.
  3. Discuss grief, loss, and bereavement across the lifespan.
  4. Integrate self-care practices that encourage resilience and decrease compassion fatigue, burnout, and moral distress across practice settings.
