Event description

Description

Research reveals that 80% of Americans would prefer to die at home, pain-free and with dignity. Often, family members and friends express a desire to be included in this significant transition. Established over 50 years ago, hospice (and palliative care, its newer companion) have not been fully understood or utilized until recently. Increasingly recognized and endorsed in mainstream healthcare, hospice is acknowledged for its compassionate interdisciplinary team approach that integrates skilled medical, social, emotional and spiritual needs. This workshop will provide an overview, as well as educational tools, for empowering you to engage in end-of-life discussions and how to be a bridge for accessing hospice and palliative care services. The special needs of veterans and their families will be included.
