Hospice Foundation of America's 19th annual national bereavement program, "End-of-Life Ethics," is to be moderated by Lynn Sherr, former ABC News correspondent. Community Hospice Care, 181 E. Perry St., is to host a viewing of the program 1-4:30 p.m. April 27.
The program employs a case-study approach to examine ethical issues and dilemmas that emerge at the end of life, the principles of ethical decision-making and the effects of these decisions on staff members and families. This program has attracted attention in part because it contains weeks-old interviews with the principals of such landmark end-of-life cases as Quinlan and Cruzan, as well as the more recent Schiavo case.
Continuing education units are available for many disciplines for a fee. To learn more, visit the Hospice Foundation of America website at www.hospicefoundation.org.
