Humanistic Patient Care Training: Content and Methodology. Interdisciplinary Team Training and Humanistic Patient Care for Hospices. Monograph 5.
Grady, Kathleen A.; Wilson, Dottie C.
This monograph, the fifth in a series of five, provides training information for hospice staff in improving interdisciplinary team functions and humanistic care provisions. Its purpose is to provide a skilled group trainer with the hospice-specific insights necessary to conduct training in humanistic patient care. Chapter 1 covers training program content and structure, trainer roles, and preparation for training. In chapter 2 are vignettes that explore contrasting and conflicting examples of patient and staff values and attitudes as they may occur within the 11 content areas in humanistic care training. Chapter 3 contains vignettes that provide examples of staff use of process skills in the provision of humanistic patient care. Chapter 4 offers guidelines for training in four categories: humanistic patient care definitions, components, and applications; psychosocial variables in working with dying patients; patient and family needs, environment, and rights; communication skills and styles; and monitoring of humanistic patient care provisions. Each section has this format: background information for trainers, training session outlines, examples from hospice training experiences, and selected resource materials. Following a bibliography are definitions and tables of contents of the five monographs. (YLB)
