End of Life Care Lessons from COVID-19: The Importance of Nursing Communications in Loss and Grieving

About This Webinar

Among the many hardships that COVID-19 inflicted upon the healthcare system, end-of-life procedures and methods have required drastic change.

Loss and grief are difficult circumstances to navigate in the best of times, and effective communication makes a big difference in how patients and families experience and remember the end-of-life care provided.

For the last few months, the degree of isolation associated with COVID-19 has put nurses’ communication skills under even more pressure at the end of a patient’s life. In this webinar, we will discuss communication challenges and how to identify the best resources to succeed in these situations.

In this webinar, learn about:

  • Communication challenges specific to the care of patients and families dealing with COVID-19
  • A case study to examine best practices in discussing loss and grief
  • Identifying resources available to nurses to facilitate communication with patients and families dealing with COVID-19
  • Recognizing and identifying grief responses experienced by nurses caring for patients with COVID-19
