It was both an honour and a privilege to teach once again at the storied house built my Mrs. Margaret Anderson. Last week I taught emotional and psychosocial aspects of end-of-life to volunteers, staff, nurses and PSWs. This week we delved into Cultural Humility and how we epitomize the usage of the 'teach me method' and becoming 'the student of the resident' to harvest insights in individual-centered care. To have such a diverse background of professions, in addition to personal experiences of death and loss, made the evenings extraordinary.
Ian Anderson House is a VERY special place, with exceptional people serving within its hallowed walls.
