Date & Time
9:30 am - 5:00 pm
The Art of Dying Institute presents:
End of life is a developmental stage, which is experienced by all patients, and requires a unique set of skills by their caregivers. However, those studying nursing, medicine, and other allied professions are usually not taught how their patients die.
The absence of this education leads to misunderstandings about the nature and goals of medical care, inability to communicate, and increased suffering for clinicians, patients, and family. Additionally, our healthcare institutions are designed to minister to patients with acute episodic illnesses geared toward their recovery. However, many patients have chronic, progressive life-limiting illnesses and will not recover.
In this workshop, we will discuss how our education and institutional systems fail patients at the end of life and explore ways we can improve and transform them. Appropriate for all healthcare professionals.
