The CTC-RI Team-Based Care group gathered in November for a presentation from the RI Geriatric Education Center (RIGEC) when Mari Dias, Ed.D. focused on Supporting Older Adults through Grief and Loss. The 130 meeting attendees were invited to reflect on the causes of grief, cultural ideas of death and mourning, and the neurological responses to a loss. Dr Dias provided some best practices for helping older adults navigate loss and grief of all kinds. The slide deck for this presentation is available on the RIGEC’s website along with the recording.
We hope that you will join us for our next Team-Based Care meeting on December 19, featuring Margo Katz, MA, presenting on Safe Sleep Best Practices. Margo is the RIDOH Program Manager for Safe Sleep and Substance-Exposed Newborns. Register here.
