Who is the End-Of-Life program for?

Answer:
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.

Re-Imagining the End of Life: Self-Development & Reflective Practices for Nurses 2021

End Of Life 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 programs, 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.
