abstract

  • Caring for the terminally ill and their families is a unique experience. The experiences of our everyday work shape and transform us as individuals and as teams in ways that are sometimes subtle and unrecognizable and other times quite overt and apparent. Yet some of us as palliative care professional caregivers seldom take the time to stop and reflect on the work we do and how it impacts us, both personally and collectively as a team. In this article we share our experiences with a multidisciplinary "Reflection" Group.
