I am proud to share that I am one of this year’s faculty at the At the End of Life: Agency, Role and Responsibilities of the Physician/Advanced Practitioner conference scheduled to be held September 13-14, 2019, at the University of Washington in Seattle, Washington.
Physicians and advanced practitioners have the privilege and duty to care for patients at the end of life. Sometimes their actions factor into a patient’s death. These cases have clinical, legal, ethical, sociocultural, spiritual, and psychological dimensions that are often challenging for physicians and advanced practitioners to navigate.
At this conference, we’ll set the stage for ongoing discussion of these practices and the issues physicians and advanced practitioners caring for dying patients often face, as both medical technology and patients’ requests for planned death evolve. I look forward to what promises to be an informative and engaging session.
