Turning inward – a compassionate response to caregiver wellbeing in the context of loss, grief and suffering

The APA QLD Neurology group has coordinated with the Bereavement Service of the QLD Children's Hospital to deliver a lecture discussing management of clinician grief and loss in a caregiving profession such as Physiotherapy.

This discussion will include:

  • Encouraging participants to consider/ explore the concept of ‘turning inward' on our own experiences of confronting suffering in our personal and professional lives. To walk alongside someone who is suffering, or who is caring for someone who is suffering, we first need to have attended to our own thoughts, beliefs and experiences around these themes.
  • An overview of how we construct our thinking around loss, grief and bereavement by normalising this experience and introducing a community capacity building framework.
  • Introducing the Walking Alongside resource that covers themes such as vulnerability, hope, uncertainty and trust, and build an engaged conversation around these themes.
  • Drawing on the previous conversations, we will explore how we can integrate these learnings within a series of case studies relevant to the APA audience.
