4J – Cultivating Resiliency: The Practice of the Arts in Palliative Care

Speaker(s): Andrea Wichhart Tately, Mdiv; Joan Golden, RN, BSN, CHPN; Sharon Chung, LICSW

Palliative care and hospice providers journey with folks in some of the most intimate and vulnerable moments of a person’s life. This experience leads to rewards as well as stress. As a RN with 35 years of experience I have come to find inspiration and comfort in sharing this journey with others through the lens of the arts. This session is an opportunity to pause on the path and explore the landscape of our hearts. A truly powerful way to honor expertise and share in humanity.

Upon completion of the activity, learners will be able to:

• Identify signs of burn out.

• Integrate the experience of the arts to promote resiliency.

• Bring this tool to their workplace to promote team health.
