When we think of terminal diagnosis we many times only consider the experience of the patients and their families. We often forget that medical professionals fighting for and along side them experience loss and grief as well. I had the pleasure of speaking with LaToya Britt, Oncology Nurse Practitioner and author who is one of the brave souls who walks the line of life and death with her patients on a daily basis.
During our time together we discussed her experience and beliefs about death, dying and grief. We also discussed how she balances her mental, emotional and spiritual wellness to equip her to give her all to her patients and their families.
It is our hope and prayer that this video will help those professionals who work in environments where death is prevalent to seek outlets and ways to manage their grief and balance their professional and personal well being mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.
