When a loved one is in the hospital, caregivers can end up feeling neglected, unheard, lonely, and afraid.
The Education Program encourages guests to share their experience with a medical crisis. At the same time, medical, nursing, physician assistant, and chaplain students increase their awareness of and inspire confidence to advocate for patients and their families. Students also gain valuable interprofessional skills.
“I will never walk into a patient’s room with the same eyes again. I will make a point of not only speaking politely to the family in the room, but will also ask how they are doing and if there is anything we can do for them.”
