I supported Gail for five years. On her last day, I stood by her bed when they made the decision to remove the ventilator. I kissed her goodbye before they moved her to a private room and then I left, heading out into the cold night air with the sensation of her forehead on my lips. When Gail died her disability died with her, and so did the rationale for my presence in her life. I was no longer her worker, I was transformed into a person who had loved her and lost her. . OBJECTIVES:As a result of this workshop participants will be able to reflect on the complexities of the paid support role when it becomes end-of-life care. Participants will be encouraged to identify the potential ethical dilemmas that end-of-life presents for paid workers, and to consider how the relationship between paid staff and family may undergoes a renegotiation at this time. Participants will reflect on the need for clear communication, transfer of knowledge, and the need to structure how hospital staff will shared information between staff and family.
