Conversations on Caregiving – Respite is a contact sport, not a spectator sport

Podcast 2 – Respite is a contact sport, not a spectator sport.      

In this second podcast in the ARCH series, Conversations on Caregiving, Melissa Leisen and Christine McGrane introduce their college- and university-based pediatric respite programs in Virginia, and in Rhode Island. Melissa and Christine describe how these two programs were created, and the benefits for both caregiving families and nursing students in training. Important for workforce development, Melissa and Christine discuss training content and process, and the qualities and skills students acquire and carry forward with them in their careers after having trained in pediatric respite programs.
