Many of us in hospice and palliative care have seen firsthand that the process of navigating serious illness and dying for people within our complex health care system can be confusing, crisis-driven, and dis-heartening. Many of our patients and families come into our care without much preparation for the end of life - and sometimes with a sense that they've lost track of what matters most.

Additionally, we are living in a time of significant disruption and change related to both the presense of a viral pandemic and a heightened awareness of racial inequities within health care.

In the face of all of this:

  • How are we caring for ourselves?
  • How is our care for others changing?
  • What forms of innovation and improvisation are evolving as a response?
  • How might we share our skills and capacities as end-of-life professionals with others?
  • What does it mean to re-imagine how we die and how we care for each other in these transformative times?

There is potential for more rapid change to take place during this time of disruption and deep reflection.

Let's spend time together imagining how we might each contribute to this cultural tipping point in creating more conscious and compassionate end-of-life care.

Meet Jan Booth

Jan Booth
Speaker Bio
Janet Booth MA, RN, NC-BC has worked as a nurse for over 34 years within the intersection of quality of life and end of life, and she is deeply curious about what creates and sustains well-being throughout the human experience.

Her initiation into the world of death and dying came during nursing school as an unexpected calling. She had started school with the intention of becoming a midwife and helping birth babies. But then she heard a clear call to serve instead as a midwife for the dying. Since that time, Jan has never looked back. Her work trajectory has taken her from the bedside of hospice and palliative care patients to supporting the well-being of caregivers, and now into the larger community to further open our cultural conversation about end of life.

As an Integrative Nurse Coach, Jan focuses on the practice of well-being in aging, illness, and dying. She supports people in navigating serious illness, helps families to talk more openly about end-of-life priorities, and provides health coaching for both professional and personal/family caregivers.

She serves as faculty for both the Conscious Dying Institute's end-of-life coaching and doula programs, and for the Integrative Nurse Coach Academy's certificate programs. Her book, "Re-Imagining the End of Life: Self-development and Reflective Practices for Nurse Coaches", won the American Journal of Nursing's Best Books of 2019 award in the categories of Palliative Care & Hospice and Professional Issues.
