The therapeutic presence of nurses in the place of suffering
Presented by Deborah Holman, Lecturer, St Christopher’s CARE and Leonor Pacheco, Deputy Ward Manager, St Christopher’s
Much of the work in palliative nursing involves accompanying the person as they encounter loss and suffering. This can be hard and we seek to alleviate suffering wherever we can. However there will be times where our very presence is all that we can offer and often that is all that is needed to enable that person to be seen, to know they will not be abandoned and they matter right to the end of their life. Come and meet Deborah and Leonor, two nurses who have thought deeply on this aspect of nursing. They will share with us stories and strategies on how we can ‘meet the moment’, stay present and care for oneself at such times.
The Lantern Model is contemporary model of nursing for people dying or bereaved.
The Lantern Model articulates the unique, vital and skilled role of nurses caring for people who are dying or bereaved and, by highlighting their contribution, makes the case for increased investment in their recruitment, development and retention.
