Ep 20: Living While Dying- Jan Booth, MA, RN, NC-BC Highlights
“There is so much taboo and phobia, and reluctance to talk about death and dying and even though I may be a conversation opener in end-of-life, I still grew up and was formed within a culture that did not want to talk about death and dying.”  ~Jan Booth
Nurse Coaches begin where a person is in their own health, and they are open to discussing brokenness, hope, wellbeing, resilienceAll of us will die, yet there is an illusion that we all have time, so health is not urgent. Someone who lives with a serious illness, or is at their end of life has a different sense of urgencyNurse Coaches make a difference by talking about difficult situations and use their voices to make change in the present broken health care systemNurse Coaching is understanding how people change, seeing a readiness to change versus not readiness to change, and what contributes to their readiness to changePeople must believe they can change and have a vision for something different than what is. This does not come easy to most, so a partnership with a Nurse Coach is essentialAt the heart of coaching is a capacity to be fully present, to not be afraid of what someone is wrestling with, to not need to fix it, to not shut ourselves off because we're afraid, but to be able to be fully present. These are the keys to working with someone who's living with serious illness.Death is a natural process. Nurse Coaches can teach the human skills of how to incorporate death and impermanence into how we live.  If we don’t learn the human skills of how to care for each other, we'll continue to feel lost
