This seminar will explore the physical, emotional, and spiritual suffering that may accompany the end-of-life journey and choices that patients might pursue to end this suffering. Come prepared to learn about how to listen and how to respond to requests to hasten death – What is the dying person really asking? What are the ethical and legal options to stopping treatment or nutrition? This seminar is appropriate for healthcare professionals of all disciplines and of all levels, as well as educators, social workers, clergy members, interested community persons, and anyone involved personally or professionally with the care of the seriously ill.
