Description: As contemplative spiritual practices find an increasing presence within palliative and end-of-life care, there is both an opportunity and a need to educate practitioners into contemplative approaches to grief and loss. There is a growing understanding that empathy, ethics and compassion are key values to help transform and integrate contemplative compassionate care for clinicians, patients and their families. Hospice and palliative care practitioners will learn strategies for integrating contemplative approaches to grief and loss into their interdisciplinary teams and for helping their fellow team members understand the value of such approaches. In addition, participants will learn about approaches to care, practice and education as well as the services being provided by the chaplains and members of the New York Zen Center for Contemplative Care (NCZCCC).

Objectives:

  • Define and deeply understand contemplative care approaches and function in palliative and end-of-life practice
  • Describe the foundational components of contemplative approaches to grief and loss
  • Demonstrate to their teams the advantages of integrating contemplative approaches to grief and loss as part of the hospice and palliative care programs.
