Dealing with a significant loss is an inevitable part of life and grief is a natural part of the healing process, but when faced with external circumstances, that healing process becomes profoundly difficult to overcome. During this presentation, we will examine the different shades of grief as experienced by individuals living in poverty and discuss the unique challenges they face as they seek grief support while struggling to meet basic needs. Significant factors such as access, stigmas, and other influences will be considered as we explore the grieving experiences of these minority populations.

Target Audience:
Members of the donation and transplantation community serving diverse populations to include administrators, coordinators, physicians, nurses, surgeons, managers, quality improvement specialists, social workers, and other donation and transplantation center professionals and their colleagues.

Learning Objectives:
At the end of the webinar, participants should be able to:

  • Outline the reasons why people living in poverty are at an increased risk of experiencing loss, secondary loss and cumulative loss.
  • Identify barriers individuals experiencing homelessness face in understanding and acknowledging their loss and in grieving these losses.
