Brand,

Thank you for mentioning vicarious suffering.  I missed that part of what she discussed, but it resonates with me.  Particularly for me in the inpatient setting as I support nurses as they wrestle with feeling like at times they are torturing patients in the extremely aggressive care that they are asked to give at times despite the reality of death being the only outcome.  It gives me pause to think about how I can better support and advocate for their (the staff members) care.
