Thursday Feb 2, 2012
9:00 am – 12 noon

Queen’s Conference Center RM 203
Corner of Punchbowl and Beretania, Honolulu, HI
Attendance is free. 

The room holds 40 people so please register with: Julia Joyce  to determine if a bigger room might be needed. 

Background: Hospice Foundation of America’s New Perspectives Fall Educational Program explores the most current theoretical perspectives on dying, death, and grief, emphasizing areas where understandings of dying, death, and grief have been challenged and developed since the 1969 publication of Kübler-Ross’ epochal work, On Death and Dying.

The presentation emphasizes the practice implications of these new perspectives and would be useful to a range of professionals who counsel persons who are dying or bereaved, including psychologists, counselors, clergy, social workers, nurses, physicians and other health care workers, as well as educators, teachers and school-based personnel.  In addition, it would benefit individuals who offer education on loss, grief, dying or death.

Continuing education contact hours (CEs) is available through the Hospice Foundation of America for nurses, social workers, counselors, funeral directors, clergy, nursing home administrators, and more. Please visit their website for details. You have to apply for your CE credit on-line and there is a $30 online processing fee per CE certificate (click on the ‘obtain CE’ link.) Please note that this CE is not offered thought the Queen’s Medical Center.
