Resiliency, Hope, and Gratitude are the Answer

In this podcast Chris interviews Dr. Elizabeth Burpee, a Hospice and Palliative Medicine who also works in Research with Four Seasons.  We continue to see staff stressed and some even describing what they are experiencing in hospice and palliative care as burnout.  Dr. Burpee was already researching prior to COVID via Project Echo what is occurring in the hospice and palliative care field and through that research sees that Resiliency is the key.  She shares strategies and resources that are making a difference for many in the field.  She also shares how hope and gratitude are key to the path of resiliency.

Covid Vaccine - Straight Forward Answers

In this podcast Chris Comeaux interviews Dr. John Morris, Pulmonologist and Hospice & Palliative Care physician about the COVID vaccine.  Dr. Morris has conducted several informational webinars for hospice and palliative staff throughout the TCN network.  Here is a common comment we have heard after those webinars, “Staff was concerned and not planning on getting the vaccine and after the webinar by Dr. Morris staff were asking how do I move forward to get the vaccine?”  In this podcast Dr. Morris gives straight forward answers regarding why it is important to get vaccinated.  He also debunks several myths being passed along via social media and the internet.  Feel free to share this podcast with family and friends.
