Beaumont Hospital Palliative Care Study Day
Grief and the Healthcare worker
“No matter what we might do to make it easier,
death remains the ultimate separation,
the ultimate unknown”
Idiosyncratic beliefs values assumptions about self, others, life.
Meaning making &
Unit’s goals, values assumptions about care in
Illness, dying, death
Rules regarding professional conduct.
Every morning a new arrival
A joy, a depression, a meanness,
Some momentary awareness comes
As an unexpected visitor
Welcome and entertain them all!
Even if they’re a crowd of sorrows,
Who violently sweep your house
Empty of its furniture.
Still treat each guest honourably.
He may be clearing you out for some new delight
The dark thought, the shame, the malice,
Meet them at the door laughing, and invite them in.
Be grateful for whoever comes, because each has been sent
As a guide from beyond.
