Tackling Ethical Dilemmas at End-of-Life

Join us for "Tackling Ethical Dilemmas at End-of-Life: An Intensive for the Hospice & Palliative Care Team." Hospice and Palliative Care team members face a number of ethical challenges in their day to day care of patients, families and clients. Everything from whether a patient is safe in the home, to who is able to make care decisions, to having team members with a different understanding of boundaries – end-of-life care is difficult! This Ethics Intensive will use the ethical principles to create a framework for identifying and addressing ethical dilemmas, boundary issues and moral distress with a focus on how COVID-19 has impacted us all. The importance of ethics to patient care, organizational structure and staff satisfaction will be explored during this interactive session. Participant-submitted case examples will be utilized throughout the session to be sure that topics of most concern are discussed.
