Nursing: Compassionate Care for Historically Marginalized Populations

Primary tabs

Event Description

Nurses understand that skilled care requires not only a great education, but also a tremendous capacity for compassion. There is often, though, a disconnect between our desire to be compassionate and how our national culture affects our unconscious beliefs and actions. The impact of this dissonance can run the gamut from disappointing experiences in healthcare to catastrophic damage.

Please join Patrice Lockert Anthony as she guides you through a three-step process (Origins, Consequences, Healing) of identifying and acknowledging how our national culture can unconsciously impact the care nurses provide. In the second session (Monday, October 28, 2019), we'll engage in role playing and break-out sessions to encourage dialogue and healing for a more inclusive compassionate caregiving.

Patrice Lockert Anthony is a trained and experienced mediator and facilitator with an acknowledged skill in bringing groups and individuals to a better understanding of how culture creates bias. She has been recognized with citations and awards for her speaking engagements and her work in leadership equity and anti-bias training (for inclusion and diversity) both locally and nationally. Patrice owns BLACK LABEL Consulting and Coaching, and is the former President (2016-2019) of GreenStar Cooperative Market.

Workshop is from 10:00-2:00 pm. R.S.V.P. is required. Refreshents will be served. The fee is a $150.00 investment in your professional development and improved experiences with patients.
