Summary: Making decisions with and for a patient at or near the end of life is seldom easy. Medical decisions, emotions, spiritual issues, family dynamics, cultural practices, finances, and legal issues often intersect and create ethical conflicts. Caught up in these pressures, the patient's right to stop treatment and have a quiet time of sacred space to prepare for death with family members is often overlooked. This applied ethics seminar recording provides insight and answers on how to resolve these tensions and conflicts. Video clips of actual cases in various settings will enhance the understanding of the difficult ethics issues faced by the treatment team, family and patient. The emphasis of the small group discussions is on learning how to process and resolve ethical dilemmas. Participants will be guided through this process by Hanno Kirk, PhD, LICSW. He brings first hand knowledge and experience from his 35 years of practice and education in the realm of ethics and patient care.
