On April 30, 2012, join the Hospice Foundation of America (HFA) for their 19th Annual National Bereavement Program. With this year’s focus on “End of Life Ethics,” the program provides an opportunity for a wide variety of professionals to share and exchange ideas, as well as obtain continuing education credits.
Chaplain Bill Bross, Director of Spiritual Care and Values Integration for Methodist Sugar Land Hospital says, “This is a unique opportunity for clergy and health care professionals in our area to explore and discuss end-of-life ethics from a spiritual perspective. Spiritual matters are on the minds and hearts of our patients as they near the end of life. It is important for those of us who provide their care to be prepared to honor their questions and their journey.”
Lynn Sherr, former ABC News 20/20 correspondent, will team up with a panel of noted authorities to deliver an exciting program that is instrumental in educating health care professionals and families on issues affecting end-of-life ethics. The program will examine, using a case study approach, the ethical issues and dilemmas that emerge at the end of life, the principles of ethical decision making and the effects of these decisions on staff and families.
The program will be held at Methodist Sugar Land Hospital on April 30, 2012 from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. in the Main Pavilion Conference Rooms.
