    00:01 Now, to wrap up, when we're talking about grief and loss.

    00:04 This is a really difficult topic, but today, I hope you got a little baseline understanding of some things to consider about this topic.

    00:12 Now, loss can be defined by actual loss, or something that just the individual perceives as a loss.

    00:19 Now, as you remember, there's those five stages of dying or grief.

    00:24 Those include that denial stage, anger, bargaining, then depression, and eventually acceptance.

    00:32 And if you recall, the timeline of these stages can vary greatly between each individual.

    00:38 And grief and loss are complex emotions, with many influences that shape each individual experience.

    00:46 And now lastly, nurses need to understand their own personal feelings about grief and loss, because that's important in providing competent, caring, and professional care.

    00:58 Thank you for watching.
