Are you wondering how best to help students integrate a palliative approach? In this webinar, I share three essential components to consider about teaching, about your learning audience and about common concerns of educators in health care. With this understanding, I use the resources Life and Death Matters developed for personal support workers to demonstrate ways for providing excellent education, using examples of education currently being offered in long term care, home and community care, hospice and in core curriculum across Canada.
Kath Murray is a hospice palliative care nurse and educator. She was privileged to work for many years with Victoria Hospice. She began teaching health care workers throughout BC in the late 1980s. In 2004 after she wrote the first CHPCN(C) certification exam she headed east to start a graduate program in thanatology in Maryland. In 2005 she founded Life and Death Matters, and has dedicated her work to developing “delicious and digestible” resources that help health care workers (health care assistants/personal support workers) provide excellent care for the dying person and the family. Currently she is developing a new text and resources for practical nurses. Kath is honoured to work with colleagues from many communities in BC, Canada and the United States. And she is honored to rub shoulders with the iPANEL research team and affiliates.
