12:45PM Round Table Forum

1. Home Hospice Association, The Role of a Death Dula

Often when asked, what does a Death Doula “actually” do the answer is very simple: A Death Doula has done their job if they have helped prevent 911 from being called. Death Doulas are quickly finding their place in support of the dying (and those who both love and care for them). Ready, willing and able to attend at the bedside regardless of the hour of the day means that Death Doulas makes an ideal member of any team (professional, volunteer or familial) dedicated to helping each other to die well. Our roundtable discussion will help to engage conversation by presenting the following questions:

How necessary is it to have a Death Doula on an already, robust palliative care team? Who does a Death Doula see as their client and why? When does a Death Doula typically vs ideally onto the caregiving team?

2. VHA Home Health Care, Developing Your Own Self Care Plan

Palliative care professionals, PSWs Nurses, Rehab, NPs, Doctors are highly trained in caring for others by developing client focused care plans and client focused care goals. Research has shown that professional care providers do not have enough support or education on developing personal self-care strategies. The goal of our roundtable will be to discuss and practice the utilization of self-care plans not just focused on how to manage work stressors and burnout but to promote health and well-being.

3. Zoe Eyford, The Art of Self Care

Zoë’s round table discussion will focus on using creativity to navigate and process the daily challenges of our work as helpers. Particular focus will be placed on creative ways to honour the strength of attachments formed with patients and how to process (and accept) the grief that naturally occurs following the death of a patient.

4. Michelle Hillier, Finding your Groove (Joy) for 2020

Being your best self is not about exercising more or eating better. It’s about finding your groove. As a self-titled movement disruptor, Hillier connects with audiences in a different way, getting people of all ages and abilities to move in their own way, creating an unforgettable experience at your event.
