Title: Loss and Grief


1
Loss and Grief
  • The journey though the phases of grief

2
Grief
  • Emotional response
  • A human process that does not follow an order-
    people can move in and out of stages in random
    order.
  • Loss of a loved one, or the impending loss of
    ones own life.
  • The grief reaction is more severe with children
    or elderly person who has been the matriarch or
    patriarch and taken care of the family.
  • The radiographer should examine his/her own
    attitudes on death.

3
The theory of grieving
  • Dr. Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
  • Phase 1- Denial
  • Phase II- Anger
  • Phase III- Bargaining
  • Phase IV- Depression
  • Phase V- Acceptance

4
Phase 1
  • Denial
  • A patient senses he/she is dying before being
    told.
  • Only the physician should inform the patient of
    his/her terminal diagnosis.
  • A sensitive doctor will wait for the patient to
    ask.
  • The response is usually shock and denial
  • Shock is often a form of defense or protection
  • If a patient questions a radiographer on death, a
    supportive approach is to be reflective.
  • do you feel like this is the end for you?

5
Phase II
  • Anger
  • A lengthy illness, disfigurement, or a handicap
    may cause a patient to move quickly from denial
    to anger.
  • He/she may criticize family members or the
    radiographer.
  • If the radiographer gets insulted, it should not
    be taken personally.
  • Releasing the anger is therapeutic and needs to
    be vented.

6
Phase III
  • Bargaining
  • A good patient
  • Easily follow medical advice, or feel guilty for
    the displays of anger.
  • Perhaps hoping for a cure, or less suffering
  • May seek alternative modes of treatment
  • May return to anger

7
Phase IV
  • Depression
  • Acceptance of impending death, or permanent
    handicap.
  • Begins to mourn his/ her past life.
  • Silence and wanting to be alone are common.
  • Quiet support is the best way to care for the
    patient at this time. Even as a radiographer,
    make sure he/she is comfortable in the x-ray
    department. Give him/her a warm blanket or even
    a smile.

8
Phase V
  • Acceptance
  • If the patient is dying, the outside world will
    no longer be important. Immediate surroundings-
    decorated hospital room, or key supportive people
    will be near.
  • Disengage from life
  • The patient should have the freedom to discuss
    anything.
  • IF the patient faces permanent disability, he/she
    may face rehabilitation. Usually a longer grief,
    because he/she is reminded daily of what once
    was.
  • The radiographer should talk reflective.
  • sometimes it hard to believe it really
    happened
  • Let them do the talking and lead the
    conversation.
