Presented by the National Health Care for the Homeless Council
Wednesday, June 7, 2017 | 1:30-2:30 p.m. CDT
Part of the “Coffee Chat” series for clinicians, this session will examine issues related to end of life. Clinicians caring for people experiencing homelessness facing end of life sometimes grapple with challenging situations, including clarifying the individual’s wishes and values, finding ways to determine the person’s desires if he is unable to communicate them, and encouraging support and self-care for staff members.
Join Laurel Lyckholm, Clinical Professor of Internal Medicine at the University of Iowa; Annette Mendola, Chief of Clinical Ethics at the University of Tennessee School of Medicine; and Mark Fox, Associate Dean and Director of the Indiana University School of Medicine in South Bend, for this highly interactive discussion exploring case studies and possible solutions. As a participant, you will have the ability to respond and ask questions—as well as to suggest situations or topics you’d like to see covered in the discussion when you register.
