Perspectives at End of Life

Perspectives at End of Life 

To effectively work with those who are facing the end of life, we must first look into our own fears and values, beginning a personal exploration into how we face dying and how witnessing the dying of others may transform our perceptions. Issues such as quality of life, being a burden, losing independence, finding meaning and redefining value may be challenges experienced by patients. This presentation invites you to examine your perceptions and offers suggestions for helping transform the experience of dying to one of dignity, hope and peace.
