  • "Most Prized Possessions": Photography as Living Relationships Within the
           End-of-Life Care of Newborns
    • Abstract: This article reports findings from a phenomenological inquiry into how parents experience End-of-Life (EOL) photography around the death of their newborn in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) and in their lives beyond the hospital. The study involved semi-structured interviews with 10 parents who had experienced the death of their newborn within the last five years in the same NICU setting. All parents had participated in EOL photography, having photos taken by nurses, by themselves, and/or by volunteer professional photographers. Through an Interpretive Phenomenological Analysis, the theme of "living relationships" emerged, revealing the photography as valued more than for the photos as "mementos," but further as an activity grounding relationships and fostering interaction between families, newborns, and care-providers; these findings provide insight into how parents came to see their EOL photos as "prized possessions." The article is concluded with a discussion on a Model for Photographing Living Relationships.

  • Globalization, Market Symbolism, and Coping
    • Abstract: Current understandings about coping have been shaped by a neo-liberal economic philosophy. This article examines the symbolic side of this outlook and considers the ways in which market imagery reinforces coping as a model of global integration. This philosophy, however, has been documented to threaten well-being. Moreover, within various philosophical fields, the assumptions that guide market imagery have lost credibility. This shift in thinking is examined and calls for a rethinking of market-based coping.

  • Student Nurses Learning About Death, Dying, and Loss: Too Little, Too
           Late?
    • Abstract: Concerns about the care provided to people dying from life-threatening illness have prompted a number of international reforms to improve the quality of palliative and end-of-life (EOL) care. The majority of this care is provided by nurses. They spend more time with dying patients than any other health professionals and therefore, need specific clinical skills and knowledge. Palliative and EOL care education is increasingly being positioned as a specialism, available only to a small number of registered nurses as part of continuing professional development. However, increasing numbers of patients with life-threatening illness are being treated in non-specialist settings by nurses with a generalist education. Furthermore, undergraduate nurse education has traditionally had a limited focus on palliative and EOL care, hence claims that undergraduate nursing curricula are inadequate. Drawing on an international literature, this review explores the evidence about the adequacy of undergraduate curricula in this area. It considers the extent to which palliative and EOL curriculum is included in undergraduate nurse education and draws upon evidence from students and registered nurses, who as consumers of education, report feeling unprepared to care for and communicate with, dying patients.

  • "Strong Men Don't Cry, But I'm Not Strong Anymore": A Case Study of Bodily
           Engagement with Stories of Loss and Grief in Palliative Care
    • Abstract: This case study addresses the importance of "life review" with regard to the crucial and demanding emotional work of older adults in palliative care who are experiencing the existential pain of grief and loneliness near the end of life. Drawing upon the reflexive field notes of one Spiritual Health Practitioner this case study describes the spiritual needs and care for an older deafened and emotionally-inhibited man in a long-term palliative care unit who described himself by saying "all I am is stories." By illuminating the concept of "embodied listening" in response to stories told by a patient with significant hearing loss this case study differentiates the uses of voice and of body in therapeutic relationships.

  • Grief is Absurd
    • Abstract: The purpose of this article is to critically examine the journey the author took as she navigated her younger brother's sudden accident, and subsequent death. Through the use of reflective autoethnography, she details her brother's accident-related illness and her family's trials as they took care of him for almost 4 years. Furthermore, she offers her inner thoughts as she struggled to balance her life and come to terms with the tragic situation. Findings may help extend the knowledge of the grieving process, death, illness, autoethnographies, and personal narratives.

  • Parents' Views of Their Child's Death by Suicide
    • Abstract: Families who have lost someone to suicide may have missed some significant clues. This is an exploratory study examining 53 parents who have lost a child to suicide. Only 15% were aware that their child was at risk for suicide and were alerted to the risk by their clinician. Forty-four percent had no clue at the time of their child's impending suicide and, in retrospect, were in denial, while the others had only a gut feeling or suspicion. A qualitative analysis of the parents' responses to an open-ended questionnaire suggests that parents need more knowledge about suicide, especially the cues and warning signs to look for in their children, and to be more open to warnings given to them by others.

  • A New Mourning: Synthesizing an Interactive Model of Adaptive Grieving
           Dynamics
    • Abstract: The human grieving response is neither categorically simple, nor is it a predictable linear process. A new paradigm of adaptive grieving is emerging in the grief and bereavement research literature that validates diversity of adaptive responses among grievers, yet suggests essential interrelated components of adaptive grieving. However, theoretical models that effectively synthesize and integrate current empirical knowledge regarding the components of adaptive grieving are lacking. This article proposes the model of adaptive grieving dynamics (MAGD)—which synthesizes four types of interrelated grieving responses by their adaptive function and incorporates them as essential components of an interactive, griever-centered model.

  • The Psychological Impact of Stillbirth on Women: A Systematic Review
    • Abstract: This systematic review explored the psychological impact of stillbirth (from 20 weeks gestation) on mothers. A search was conducted in the National Library for Health and Web of Science, Cochrane Review, and Google Scholar. A secondary search based on results from the preliminary search was undertaken. A systematic search identified 26 articles (8 qualitative, 18 quantitative studies), which met criteria and were reviewed according to guidelines. The findings revealed that stillbirth is a distressing experience that can result in high levels of psychological symptoms including anxiety, depression, distress, and negative well-being. Symptoms appear to be highest in the first few months post loss although there is evidence to suggest that for some, symptoms may persist up to 3 years. The long-lasting impact of stillbirth on women was echoed in the qualitative research. Risk factors for higher levels of anxious and depressive symptoms included higher parity at the time of loss and not being married. Social support in particular was identified to be beneficial for women post loss. Longitudinal studies utilizing designs which permit causality to be determined are required to explore the specific experience of stillbirth. Further exploration of risk and protective factors, cultural beliefs, and the impact on partner relationships is needed. Clinical implications of the findings are discussed in light of current guidance.
