TEDxTalk – YouTube link is live!

On Sept 30 of this year, I had the incredible opportunity to give a TEDxTalk with TEDxPasadena on “How Grief Can Enable Nurses to Endure.” This talk is for all healthcare professionals, but nurses in particular, who have grieved with and for their patients and families, and have went home wondering what to do with this grief we bear in our hearts. This is not a standard inspirational talk with an underlying “You’re doing great!” tone. Rather, it is one that I deeply hope gives validation and voice to our humanity as nurses, and then gives a different perspective that allows us to live with our grief in a way that is honestly painful but ultimately life-giving.

Here is the video. Please share, for all the caregivers in your life, or perhaps, just for you.
