Living With Grief: Before and After the Death
March 11, 2007
Franklin Memorial Hospital is hosting a teleconference entitled “Living with Grief: Before and After the Death,” sponsored by the Board of Chaplains on Thursday, March 22, from 1:30-4 p.m. in the Bass Room. Rhonda Wiles of Wiles Funeral Home will facilitate a half hour discussion immediately following the broadcast.
This live broadcast, moderated by Frank Sesno, Professor of Media and Public Affairs at the George Washington University and Special Correspondent with CNN, will provide an educational forum in which a panel of experts will explore the most current theoretical perspectives on loss and grief as experienced by persons throughout a life-limiting illness and by survivors after the death. The panel will focus on areas where understandings of grief have been challenged.
The teleconference is produced by Hospice Foundation of America (HFA), which acts as an advocate for the hospice concept of care through ongoing programs of professional education, public information and research on issues relating to illness, loss, grief, and bereavement. Each year the HFA presents a live nationally recognized distance-learning program to more than 125,000 people in 2,000 communities. This annual educational program has been instrumental in educating health care professionals and families on issues affecting end-of-life care.
The teleconference will also provide an opportunity for a wide variety of professionals – including doctors, nurses, funeral directors, psychologists, educators, social workers, and bereavement counselors – to share and exchange ideas and obtain continuing education credits. Attendance at Ms. Wiles discussion is required for those seeking continuing education credits.
The teleconference is free and open to the public. However, there is a charge for those earning continuing education credits. To attend or for more information, contact the Medical Librarian by phone at 779-2554 or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
