Event description

Description

Runaway medical costs are a huge concern for patients needing expensive end-of-life care. Exorbitant ambulance, emergency room and hospital charges can financially ruin a family without providing a higher quality of life for the patient.

This Tough Conversation will address the following questions:

  • How do you give patients back their dignity at the end of life?

  • How do you have that conversation?

  • What are the rights of patients who can’t speak?

Leading the conversation will be:
Tom R. Fitch, M.D. Consultant and Director
– Center for Palliative Medicine and the Division of Hematology and Oncology at Mayo Clinic

All sessions are free and open to the public with online registration.

Reception begins at 4:30 p.m. with the discussion beginning at 5 p.m.

Goodbye Doesn't Have to be a Struggle is part of a series of Tough Conversations about health. Learn more about the series.
