Ethical Dilemmas at the End of Life

by Deborah Stinchfield

Dying in the U.S. today can be remarkably complicated. The ethical conundrums of the past have been replaced with much more nuances and complex debates. These decisions affect society's legal and political debates. Daily realities of hospice and palliative care can radically shape a family's experience of a death, sometimes painfully complicating grief.

On Wednesday, April 20, from 10:30 to 1:30 pm, Pathways Hospice and Queen of the Holy Rosary College will host Hospice Foundation of America's 12th Annual National Bereavement Teleconference, "Ethical Dilemmas at the End of Life." A nationally distinguished panel of ethicists, educators and hospice experts will offer constructive advice and examine issues regarding medical ethics, how health care settings and cultural differences may influence ethical decisions and how end-of-life decisions may affect the course of grief.

Moderated by Cokie Roberts, ABC News Political Commentator and NPR Senior News Analyst, the program will be broadcast at Holy Rosary College Auditorium, Mission San Jose, 43326 Mission Boulevard, Fremont. To register for this free teleconference or for information about continuing education and other Bay Area locations, contact Linda Conti at (888) 755- 7855.
