May 31, 2012

Great River Hospice will host “End-of-life Ethics,” a teleconference moderated by former ABC News’ “20/20” correspondent Lynn Sherr, from 1 to 4 p.m. Thursday, June 7, in the Great River Hospice House Conference Room, 1306 S. Washington Rd., West Burlington.

The teleconference will feature an expert panel using a case-study approach while examining the 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 and families. It is free and open to the public.

Three contact hours of continuing education are approved for several professions. Information about credit and fees will be available at the teleconference.

The teleconference is produced by Hospice Foundation of America, a not-for-profit organization that supports the hospice concept of care through ongoing professional-education programs, public information and research on issues relating to illness, loss, grief and bereavement.
