Interview with the author: Student Reflections on Competent Spiritual Care for Dying Patients

Yesterday, Dr. Mark Kuczewski spoke with WBEZ Chicago’s Tony Sarabia on The Morning Shift about his article in January’s Spirituality and Health collection: “I Will Never Let That Be OK Again”: Student Reflections on Competent Spiritual Care for Dying Patients,” by Mark G. Kuczewski, PhD; Michael P. McCarthy, MA;  Aaron  Michelfelder, MD; Emily E. Anderson, PhD, MPH; Katherine  Wasson, PhD, MPH; and Lena Hatchett, PhD

“A new study finds that students at Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine feel unrest about becoming desensitized to patients’ deaths. The students expressed a need to share feelings and emotions with one another and patients. The study’s lead author Mark Kuczewski shares more findings from the study, and what medical students can do to strike the right balance when dealing with death.” [Source]
