Clarke to Host National Screening of “Defining Hope”

October 24, 2017

Defining Hope is a new documentary following eight patients with life-threatening illnesses and the nurses who guide them and will be released in select theaters nationwide for special screenings on November 1, in honor of National Hospice and Palliative Care Month.

Clarke University will host a free screening in Jansen Music Hall at 7:30 p.m. on November 1. This event is made possible by the generous support of Sigma Theta Tau International, Rho Eta Chapter, the Clarke University Nursing Department, and Hospice of Dubuque.

Defining Hope explores what makes life worth living and what to do as individuals and for our loved related to end of life concerns. The topic of quality end-of life care is brought to the forefront through the stories of patients, families, nurses, and healthcare professionals in the film.

Defining Hope is produced by Carolyn Jones Productions, the same team that created The American Nurse Project, an award-winning photography book and documentary film celebrating nurses. Defining Hope is made possible through the generous support of the Jonas Center for Nursing and Veterans Healthcare, the American Nurses Foundation, Jeannie Patz Blaustein, The E. Rhodes and Leona B. Carpenter Foundation, and Walden University.

Thanks to the generous support of Walden University, nurses will receive 1.25 free contact hours for watching the film and completing the evaluation. Walden University is accredited as a provider of continuing nursing education by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation.
