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

Viewpoint: the dying patient( Visual )

1 edition published in 1972 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This program presents pictures of and discussions by two dying patients who describe their feelings and reactions to this experience. According to the instructor's manual, the purpose of the program is to help viewers become aware of and express personal feelings. The first patient is a 35 year old male architect who has a wife and two children. He has been having severe headaches for almost a year and has delayed seeing a doctor. 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. The second patient is an elderly widow who has been sick for a long time with an illness which has remissions and exacerbations. Shedescribes a turning point in her illness at which time she decides not to feel sorry for herself but to continue to serve God in her own way. Throughout her life, friends and family have come to her with their problems and she is pleased shecan help. She suspects that she will die and tries, unsuccessfully, to discuss this possibility with her doctor, family, and friends. Through her strength of character and religious beliefs, however, she comes to accept the reality of herdeath with peace and dignity

The grief process and the two different types of psychological responses, namely, coping mechanisms and emotional reactions are explained. Specific types of coping mechanisms, such as denial, regression, and intellectualization, and their effectiveness in helping the fatally ill person cope are discussed. The emotional reactions, primarily, anger, guilt, shame, and grief and depression by which a person expresses his feelings are also described. Implications for nursing care of the dying patient are underscored in this discussion. The dying person's final state of mind and the factors which influence hisability to accept his death are described. Emphasis is placed on the states of resignation and acceptance which a person can experience at this time

Guidelines for interacting with the dying patient by Roger Henwedge( Visual )

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

This program depicts pictorially and discusses guidelines for interacting with the dying patient. Three needs of dying patients - the need to maintain a feeling of personal dignity and worth, the need to feel secure, and the need to have some element of hope are identified. Ways in which nurses can help to implement these needs are explored. The empathetic approach by which the nurse can "resonate with the patient's feelings and yet be able to view and evaluate these feelings dispassionately" is described. The importance of encouraging self-expression and listening intently is stressed. Factors regarding fatal illness which cause or contribute toward making the patient lose dignity, feel insecure, or lose hope are identified. Ways of expressing respect and tact, including the patient in discussions about his care, providing reassurance, and maintaining a hopeful attitude and environment for the patient, are explored. Three patients, a man withcancer of the colon, a woman with advanced cirrhosis of the liver, and a woman with systemic lupus erythematosus are shown to illustrate some of the points presented
