I'm struggling in general with therapeutic communication... Especially younger patients and their families. I've found myself in those awkward silences where I NEED to tell the families what to expect and those symptoms of dying, but then what?? They stare at me and I can't think of anyway to lighten the mood... The questions they have for me never have a good answer and I try my best to help in other aspects but I'm feeling so inadequate... My manager says there isn't anything else to do, that I've "done" everything, but surly there are a few key phrAses I can use to comfort them, just not the "god has a plan" because I've noticed younger generations are not as receptive to that...Would love some therapeutic communication pointers from any vets out there!
