A Beads of Courage, Inc. newsletter specifically for our member hospital Partners in Caring!
November 2018 Updates

We are re-releasing the Beads of Courage® Origami Crane Bead! It is available in our online refill portal. This is available to gift to anyone who could use a boost of encouragement!

The crane is a favorite subject of traditional paper folding - origami. Today, the practice of creating origami cranes has come to symbolize a wish for peace, healing and happiness!

November is National Hospice & Palliative Care Month. We are introducing the release our NEW Palliative and Supportive Care Bead to honor the therapeutic relationship caring clinicians have with Beads of Courage members when they are referred to Palliative and Supportive Care.

We are very grateful for the support of the UPMC Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh, Supportive Care Program, who supported the creation of this bead.
The Origami Crane Bead and the Palliative and Supportive Care Bead is now available in the Hospital Store for program refills. 
Beads of Courage continues to support those in Palliative, Hospice, and Supportive Care this month and throughout the year. The Strand for Strength and Remembrance Program is a wonderful addition to any bereavement or grief support that is available at your institution or in the community.

In October, Kalan Pivoney and Beth Kurtz, Child Life Specialists and Beads of Courage Ambassadors at McLane Children's Hospital in Texas, presented "Implementing a Creative Arts Workshop to Promote Mindful Practice" at the 3rd Annual Texas Association of Child Life Professionals Regional Conference. The session highlighted the use of the Beads Strong Program in clinical practice. The attendees were able to experience a Bead Strong session during the presentation.

We'd also like to recognize Beth Bender, Child Life Specialist at McLane Children's, for her contributions leading up to this presentation.
Thank you so much to Carla DeLemos, Child Life Specialist at Kaiser Permanente Oakland, for representing Beads of Courage at the Pediatric Palliative Care West Coast Summit: It's About the Journey, In Oakland California. Carla was simply amazing to take time to represent us as a Beads of Courage Ambassador, sharing our mission and programs with summit attendees.
