地域でご活躍の看護師の方々対象に、米国での終末期におけるチームアプローチについてお話させていただいた後、「2つの聴く力」体験型ワークショップに参加いただきました。自分自身のグリーフについて考えるアクティビティでは、グリーフが自分の仕事に与える影響などを考えるいい機会となったという意見をたくさんの方からいただきました。福岡医健の先生方にもご参加いただき、有意義な1日となりました。

Dr. Morita addressed nursing professors and nurses on the topic of how to provide a more unified physical and emotional strategy in treating patients who are facing end-of-life issues. Dr. Morita’s presentation entitled “Team Approach in End of Life Care in the United State” focused on how western healthcare providers are increasingly incorporating a cross-discipline strategy when dealing with terminally ill patients and their families. Western medicine oftentimes includes the treating physician, case managers, social workers, chaplains and grief counselors in a “team approach” to manage the physical, emotional and psychological impediments that prevent the patient from experiencing what end-of-life literature refers to as a “good death.”
