  • The goal of this lesson section is to introduce humor in to your hospice practice
  • The hospice nurse will incorporate humor when appropriate to the patient in keeping with the appropriateness of the place and time of the situation. A hospice patient is in need of lightness The patient is aware of their situation and may not want sadness all the time In life review there may be many funny memories that the patient would like to relive
  • Gibson’s (2004) “Finding the Joy in the Journey” is a short article about hospice patients that have passed and a joy that a little humor brought to them after the death of a loved one. The hospice nurse will need to find scholarly articles that involve humor and life review in hospice for this unit and complete a review of the article and its connection to this lesson.
  • Link for video of a motivational speaker at a hospice convention that is suggested to show that there can be humor in hospice. Hospice Motivational Speaker Brad Montgomery . http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MCcVJSH5xOk
