Attending this teleconference, moderated by Frank Sesno (Professor of Media and Public Affairs at The George Washington University and Special Correspondent with CNN), will provide an educational forum in which a multidisciplinary panel of experts examine how diversity influences end-of-life decision making. It will also discuss the impact that culture has at the time of death and during bereavement.
One of the goals of the teleconference is to increase sensitivity by helping professionals acknowledge how their own cultural values and assumptions influence the delivery of care.
The program will include a special examination of hospice care and diversity, including how hospices are reaching out to diverse groups and incorporating traditional practices and alternative therapies.
It will discuss the challenges that may occur when culture considerations may cause ethical concerns or moral distress.

A complimentary lunch will be served from 1:00 to1:30pm - Reservations Needed.

Continuing Education credits are available for a wide variety of professionals ? including doctors, nurses, funeral directors, psychologists, educators, social workers and bereavement counselors .
