Irish Hospice Foundation is hosting a free webinar: Grief & Bereavement during COVID 19 – Supporting Nursing Home Staff on Thursday 17th September from 2.30pm – 4pm as part of Palliative Care Week 2020.

The Covid-19 pandemic has had a profound effect on everyone. This is especially true for staff working in nursing homes and residential care facilities. Care staff develop close relationships with the residents that they care for and can experience grief and loss similar to when a family member dies. What is also very difficult for staff during this Covid-19 pandemic is the number of residents that are dying in a short time.

This webinar will explore the following areas:

  • Introduction to the Compassionate End of Life (CEOL) Programme
  • Covid-19, Grief and the Nursing Home Context
  • Understanding the grieving process
  • Impact grief can have on staff
  • Multiple Deaths and Traumatic Loss
  • Importance of Self Care & Organisation Care

Who is this webinar for:

This webinar is suitable for all staff who work in the nursing home sector i.e. nurses, healthcare assistants, porters, household staff, catering staff, administration, reception staff, multitask attendants, allied healthcare professional, management, directors of nursing. Irish Hospice Foundation acknowledge that all staff working in nursing homes have a role in supporting end-of-life care.
