Interactions between teens and hospice workers is topic of lecture

March 02, 2017
Location: Mullen Little Theater

Ursuline College continues its 2017 Faculty Lecture Series with a free, public lecture about the interactions between hospice workers and teens on Thursday, March 2, at noon in the Mullen Little Theater.

Assistant Professor Murray Mayo, Ph.D., will present “Interactions between Hospice Clinicians and Adolescents with a Parent in Hospice.” She will discuss her descriptive qualitative study that includes data from 45 interviews with teens who were dealing with the impending or recent loss of a parent. Dr. Mayo co-authored a paper on this topic last year in the Journal of Hospice and Palliative Nursing and the story was picked up by the Reuters news agency and distributed internationally. She teaches in the graduate program of The Breen School of Nursing at Ursuline.

In addition to teaching nursing for 30 years, her work includes longstanding experience in the hospice and palliative care environment. Dr. Mayo has also worked as a group facilitator for the American Cancer Society and the Sacred Art of Living Society.

The final lecture in this series, “Developing Multicultural Competence through Service,” by Assistant Professor Katherine Jackson, Ph.D., is scheduled for Monday, April 3, at noon in Dauby Hall, Room 201. Dr. Jackson teaches in Ursuline’s Counseling and Art Therapy master’s degree program and runs the service learning initiative.
