End-of-Life Care and Decision-Making
Please join us on Monday, June 25 for a talk by Kate Silburn.
Kate will discuss how we die in America and will present a brief history on how the process of death has radically shifted in the last century. Her discussion will include an overview of how dying presents us with a set of tasks, including the preparation of documents that will contribute to, if not secure, our self-determination at the end of our lives. Her presentation will also explore the hard questions of health-care rationing, bioethics and hope at the end-of life.
- Overview of documents pertaining to end-of-life care.
- Patient’s right to self-determination.
- The ethics and efficacy of extraordinary care at the end-of-life.
- The role of caregivers.
- The role of palliative medicine.
