Giving and Getting "The Best Care Possible" Through the End of Life
Hospice Hawaii presents:
Ira Byock, MD
Thursday, November 10, 2011
Time and location: TBA
Please note that this presentation will be in the early evening after the Kokua Mau Educational Summit. Time and location will be announced as soon as they become available. We encourage you both to attend both events, the Kokua Mau Educational Summit on Nov 10 and "Mission Possible V" on Nov. 11
Everybody wants „the best care possible"for their loved ones and themselves through the very end of life. Of course, this phrase means different things to different people. In addition to being consistent with professional standards, we strive to provide care that reflects the personal preferences of the seriously ill or injured people and their families. This requires access to a broad array of services and coordination between providers, patients and their loved ones. This presentation will explore the elements that must be in place – within health systems and within communities – and the key stakeholders who must regularly communicate and interact if we are to reliably provide „the best care possible".
