A collaboration made possible by a generous grant from the Rita and Alex Hillman Foundation.
Maine Hospice Council Executive Director Kandyce Powell, in collaboration with: Northern Light Health Palliative Care Medical Director, Dr. Vanessa Little & Pine Tree Hospice Executive Director, Kristen Sutherland
We know that health care discussions with friends, family members and medical teams can be difficult, often confusing and frustrating. We want to learn how conversations can be more user friendly.
• How can we all do better?
• What questions need to be asked?
• What elements are necessary for thoughtful, sensitive conversations, especially around patient wishes?
During our time together, information and discussion about Advance Care Planning (ACP) documents and Physician Orders of Life Sustaining Treatment (POLST) forms will be included.
This virtual event will take place on December 8, 2021 from 10:00AM to 12:00PM.
