Welcome to the Pause.ME. This site was created as a portal to help facilitate education, research and offer links to The Medical Pause. The revolution was started in 2009 as a response to the stressors that accompany death by healthcare providers. As a nurse, I wanted to find a way to formally capture this moment and respectfully reintroduce an age old practice of stopping and honoring after someone dies. It is simple and not difficult. Through its simplicity it captures the complexity that accompanies our exposure to death. It is not meant to cure the uneasiness that accompanies death; it is just one tool in many to help support Resiliency. In order to care for others we must not forsake the care of ourselves. Since implementation, ‘The Pause’ is being practiced across the United States and around the world.
