Description

Please Join us in the NOHS Boardroom to view this webinar on­­­­­­­­­­ Living with Grief: Intimacy and Sexuality during illness and loss.

Holistic treatment of individuals who are terminally ill or bereaved should include the needs of the whole person. Yet the most basic of human desires, those that include intimate and sexual relationships, are frequently avoided, dismissed, or unaddressed by healthcare, social service, clergy and bereavement professionals. Patients, family caregivers, and clients can be inhibited by the deeply personal nature of intimacy and sexuality and often do not raise concerns with professionals.

In this Living with Grief® 2020 program, Hospice Foundation of America will identify barriers to intimacy and sexuality for terminally-ill persons and the bereaved. The program will emphasize the knowledge and skills that professionals must have to sensitively address intimacy and sexuality and suggest interventions that can help dying and bereaved persons address these elemental human needs.

REACH (Resources, Education, and Advocacy to Champion Hospice-palliative care) is an innovative program designed to engage, inform, and educate the North Okanagan community with the goal of improving palliative, end-of-life, and bereavement care

Every year, NOHS hostes a suite of webinars published by the Hospice Foundation of America.
