A Better Way of Dying
JULY 15, 2010 at 1:30-4:30pm
Caring for people at the end of their lives can be very difficult. However, by respecting person-directed values, providers can meet the medical, emotional, social and spiritual needs of the dying person and provide the excellent care and autonomy we all desire at the end of life.
MOVE is pleased to bring you an afternoon of thought-provoking discussion featuring aging services providers as well as professionals representing POLST, hospice and the clergy — some of the services that comprise a holistic system of care serving individuals at end of life.
Sharing professional knowledge about how to create a person-directed, high quality death experience is an important step in actively creating a culture of positive aging and excellent end-of-life care in your organization.
- Embrace a holistic approach to person-directed end-of-life care, including spiritual preferences
- Increase knowledge about long-term care settings’ practices and rituals enhancing end-of-life care
- Understand the principles of POLST and palliative/hospice care as tools for honoring personal preferences and values at end-of-life
