BURNOUT. The exhaustion experienced by palliative and hospice care professionals isn't solely a result of the emotional aspects tied to death and dying; rather, it stems from navigating the intricate emotional landscapes of the loved ones of the dying, coupled with the demanding administrative responsibilities inherent in the role.
It's evident that schools of medicine, nursing, and social work often fall short in adequately preparing students for careers in palliative and hospice care (Csikai & Raymer, 2005; IOM, 2014; Lloyd-Williams, Cobb, Shiels, Taylor, 2006). Many individuals in this field acquire caregiving skills through on-the-job experiences. To ensure the provision of optimal end-of-life care for patients and their families, it's crucial that palliative and hospice care professionals receive a combination of formal training and informal learning opportunities.
This investment in training and awareness could be the decisive factor in facilitating a positive end-of-life experience, distinguishing between a good death and a challenging one for all parties involved. Let's connect to explore how I can assist your organization in enhancing its effectiveness in this crucial domain.
