In healthcare, especially Hospice, dealing with death and dying is a part of the job.  Yet often times Social Workers are left to explain what the hospital or physician did not - that hospice has been called because there is nothing else that can be done for the patient.  These are difficult conversations to have with both the patient and their family.  Just because Social Workers are used to having these conversations, that does not mean it is easy.  This webinar will teach you some techniques to discuss the delicate subject of death and dying.

People view medicine as something that is supposed to save lives. But in cases of chronic disease and terminal conditions, patients often need comfort and palliative care rather than a cure. There has been a national push to rethink end-of-life care and to start recognizing that extending a person’s life may not necessarily improve their life.

 

 

Register for this webinar, so that you can gain an understanding of why these conversations are so important to have with patients and families, and how to initiate these difficult conversations with patients and families you work with and the best way to go about doing this.
