End-of-Life Coaching:
Re-Imagining the Nurse’s Role in Transforming End of Life Care

4 Week Online Continuing Nursing Education Course

End Of Life Coaching

$199.00

This is a 4-week, self-paced, online course for nurses and nurse coaches, based on the book, Re-Imagining the End of Life: Self-Development & Reflective Practices for Nurse Coaches. (The book is a winner of the American Journal of Nursing’s “Best Books of 2019” award in the categories of Professional Issues and Palliative Care & Hospice.)

Nurse coaching conversations involve presence, skillful listening, significant questions, reflection, and planning. They help guide individuals living with chronic and serious illness to make decisions about care and treatment within the framework of their own life story.

By opening these conversations earlier in the trajectory of illness, we open the possibility of transforming how people experience the last part of their lives.

In this end-of-life care nursing education program, participants will find tools, skill-building, and reflective practices that encourage them to explore their personal beliefs and values about aging, advanced illness, and dying.

Nurses contribute to the transformation of end of life care by engaging with patients and families in coaching conversations throughout the continuum of illness.

When nurses work from a coaching perspective, they help individuals and families to create goals that are based on what matters most to them.

By opening up the conversations with people living with chronic and advanced illness, nurses help them to live more intentionally and with greater wellbeing.

This shifts the trajectory of how people then come into the last part of life – and affects the decisions they make.

This change in the quality of conversation could help transform end-of-life care in our country.

For nurses and nurse coaches, the ability to be compassionately present with people who are seriously ill and dying is often related to the nurses’ willingness to reflect on their own beliefs and worries about aging, illness, and dying.

This course is for all nurses, including nurse coaches, hospice and palliative care nurses, and end of life nurse practitioners, who are wanting to expand their focus to include end of life…nurses who work with seriously ill people who want to learn about coaching practices…or nurses who want to take more leadership in open conversations about preparing for the end of life.

    This course is provided online, so internet access is required.
  • Who is the End-Of-Life program for?

    This program is appropriate for all nurses, whether or not you have experience in end of life care or coaching.

    It will help you gain greater insight into the value of conversations about the end of life for yourself, family, and the patients you serve.

    In addition, some nurse coaches might be intrigued by how to coach people related to serious illness and end of life – not areas we typically think of with coaching practices.

    Some nurses might be curious about working from a coaching perspective – particularly nurses who have worked in hospice and palliative care, ICUs, elder care, and oncology. These are areas where nurses routinely spend time with seriously ill patients – and their families – and may be intrigued by a different approach to their nursing practice.

  • Why should I take a course on end of life?

    Nurses can make a big difference in how people experience the end of their lives.

    Most people in our modern health care system still come unprepared into the end of life – their own, and those of their loved ones. Much of peoples’ suffering seems to come from this unfamiliarity with the journey at end of life – and their not knowing how to prepare.

    Preparation for the last part of our lives would ideally start long before people become hospice-appropriate.

    Nurses care for patients in their most vulnerable moments, from birth through death. They have the opportunity to ask open questions about what matters most to people all throughout the trajectory of illness.

    However, without opportunities for self-reflection, talking about end of life can be an uncomfortable conversation for most nurses and other health care professionals.

    This course will help you build skills and capacities for these important conversations – as well as give you a re-imagined perspective on what might be possible if we talked more openly about living and dying.
