Hazards and challenges in providing care( Visual )

1 edition published in 1972 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This program depicts with pictures of people, the hazards and challenges in providing care to the dying patient. Initially, the wide spectrum of situations in which death is a central issue and the feelings and reactions evoked in the nurseat various points of this spectrum are explored. At one end of the spectrum is the patient who dies unexpectedly, and at the other is the patient who dies after a long illness. The nurse's expectations, both for herself and for the dying patient, are discussed in relationship to their sources, and their effect on her ability to cope. The importance of a realistic view of her professional skills, abilities to interact effectively with the dying patient, and the limitations of medical technology are explored. Factors which make interaction with the dying patient difficult are discussed. These factors relate to difficulties in determining the patient's state of awareness, responding to his questions and comments, and dealing with feelings which arise from the situation. Areas of controversy which reflect unresolved philosophical or religious questions and changing societal attitudes related to death and dying are examined. Controversies regarding possible drug addiction, when efforts to prolong life should stop, and criteria for determining when a person is dead are discussed. Specific ways of preparing for and coping with dying and death, mainly through self-examination, are described

American attitudes toward death and dying( Visual )

1 edition published in 1972 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This program uses pictures of people to depict the American attitude toward death and dying. Initially, the sense of isolation experienced by the dying patient and the difficulty experienced by people trying to relate to him are described. The factors within American culture which either create or intensify this difficulty are discussed. The effect of fears of the unknown on our attitude toward dying are examined. Attempts to accept or transcend death by means of a religiousbelief in some kind of social immortality are described and illustrated with quotations from such authors as Plato, Thomas Wolfe, Longfellow, and Tennyson. Three factors which contribute to attitudes regarding death and dying are explored. The first factor is urbanization. Urbanization has separated man from nature and has led to the segregation of the aged person from the mainstream of society. The small size of the urban family has also increased pain regarding the death ofa family member because of its size and subsequent vulnerability. Thus as a person's experiences with death has decreased, his vulnerability to it has increased. The second factor is advances in medical science. These advances have provided a certain mastery over death. Because of this presumed control over physical life, less effort has been devoted to developing a system of thought to help cope with dying and death. The third factor is secularization. This factor has also impeded or prevented the establishment of a point of view toward death. The program emphasizes that the most pervasive attitude our society has toward death is that of denial

This program presents pictures of and discussions by two nurses who describe their feelings and reactions toward caring for dying patients. According to the instructor's manual, the purpose of the program is to help the viewers become awareof and express personal feelings. The first nurse is a head nurse of an intensive care unit in a small community hospital. She describes, in particular, her difficulties and conflicts in caring for a dying patient who reminds her of her father. After the patient dies, she recalls in great detail her experiences while taking care of her father the last few days of his life. She recalls how he suffered from cancer. She describes her feelings of hopelessness and her regrets about not expressing her warm feelings to her father. She asks herself questions regarding her conflicts about caring for dying patients. She knows she is compassionate. She seems to want to express her feelings to patients but she fears she will break down and not be professional. The second nurse describes her feelings about caring for the 35 year old man who dies unexpectedly of a cardiac arrest during surgery. This man expresses his feelings regarding dying in Program V. This nurse traces her feelings from the time she first sees this healthy, dynamic man to her shock at his death. She describes the literature she reads and the seminars she attends about dying. As a result of this preparation, she feels she can cope well with the dying patient. With this particular man, however, she finds that her attempts to help him express his feelings are unsuccessful. She subsequently feels hopeless, frustrated, and has a sense of failure

His father died of a brain tumor and he fears that this may also happen to him. When he does seek medical attention his doctor admits him to the hospital for a series of diagnostic tests. During his hospitalization, he expresses feelings of anger, depression, hope, denial, and fear. He sees a funeral procession pass by from his hospital window and he describes his reaction. A nurse tries to help him but he refuses to let her. She describes her feelings in Program VI. Prior to surgery, he describes his fears of dying but says he's going to beat it. He has a cardiac arrest in the operating room and dies several days later.
