Difficult choices for patient care are increasingly made outside the hospital walls. Patients may be at home or in long-term care facilities. The decisions aren't any easier in those settings than when the patient is hospitalized, but there is definitely less help available in the community to assist families and professionals in exploring ethical questions related to patient/resident care. Our staff bioethicist provides that support to you and your patients/residents and patient families.
In partnership with the T. Boone Pickens Hospice and Palliative Care Center in Dallas, TX, we held an exciting day-long conference in September 2018 entitled "Ethical Issues in Long-Term Care: Protecting your Patients, Residents and Staff". Thank you to our engaged attendees, our excellent speakers and our supportive sponsors.
We will next present a spring 2019 lunch & learn series regarding the use of antipsychotic medications in older patients and residents. Please save the following dates, April 18, May 7 and June 4, 2019, from 11:30 am to 1:00 pm, and plan to join us for lunch and a multi-perspective discussion of this complex topic.
Details will be published soon! Please drop us a note at email@example.com if you would like to be added to the mailing list for this new educational series.
